Project: University of California, San Diego – Scripps Institution of Oceanography – Elliot Field Waterline
Extension Type: Institutional – Academic
Project Description: The Englekirk Center is an expansion of the Powell Structural Research Laboratories and is located at a field station eight miles east of the UC San Diego campus at Camp Elliott. Occupied in April of 2004, the center houses the world’s first outdoor shake table, the largest soil-structure interaction facility and a blast simulator. This project was an extension of a waterline to provide fire access for a proposed test in which the structure would undergo earthquake conditions with the additional stresses of fire.
