Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition

by Hammad Khalil, Chaun Li, Dean McChuistion, Qiyuan Gou, Jayce Locke & Amna Mahmud


A small group of students traveled to San Fransisco for the 2010 Seismic Design Competition hosted by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute. They spent hundreds of hours building the model out of balsa wood. If you would like to see a video of the model being tested, you can find it here. The link will open in a new window/tab.
