Structural engineering research at the Mid-America Earthquake Center

Abstract

Research projects of the Mid-America Earthquake Center are planned and managed about cross-disciplinary themes including vulnerability of transportation networks and performance of essential facilities. To extract from these coordinated programs just the structural engineering research projects and list them out of their program context does not reflect the attractive systems-integration focus of these programs. However, for the purpose of this session and the mono-disciplinary audience of a Structures Congress, Center structural engineering projects are listed as a point of reference. This extended abstract is intended to inform a potential research collaborator, or end-user of the research, to the structural engineering research activities of the MAE Center in the hope that further detailed information will be sought. Each one of these projects is described in more detail on project task statements given on the MAE Center website (http://mae.ce.uiuc.edu) as well as with research reports.
