NHERI Response to COVID-19 — The NHERI network's university-based Experimental Facilities (EF) are following protocols as directed by their home institutions. For details, please review the NHERI Response to COVID-19, which lists the status of each network component and EF.

DesignSafe is the web-based research platform of the NHERI Network that provides the computational tools needed to manage, analyze, and understand critical data for natural hazards research.

Research by Erazo et al. (2019) that used experimental data from Panagiotou et al. (2013)

Data Papers and Data Reuse Magnify Research Impact

One way the DesignSafe team measures impact is by tracking research papers that cite DesignSafe and the data published on the site. In a recent article, “The Impact of Data Reuse,” the DesignSafe team details useful and creative ways that researchers are reusing DesignSafe data.
