Fahnestock and Tao attend NHERI-NIED/E-Defense Meeting

Larry Fahnestock and Zhuoqi Tao attended the 3rd NHERI-NIED/E-Defense Research Collaboration Meeting in Miki, Japan, along with collaborators from Lehigh University and Oregon State University.  The research team for the new NSF-funded project “Frame-Spine System with Force-Limiting Connections for Low-Damage Seismic Resilient Buildings” observed shake table testing of a reinforced concrete building, participated in discussions with researchers from other projects and planned for shake table testing that will be conducted at E-Defense in 2020.
