Here is a project that we worked on and wanted to spotlight. The video can be found at:

It is basically a structure built on a large mechanical shake plate that will emulate an earthquake.  This test is looking at several different methods for construction, materials, systems to evaluate performance during an event.

This data can then be used by manufacturers and code authors to improve guidelines and hopefully increasing building safety during an earthquake event.
