Historic Shake Planned for NHERI Tallwood at UC San Diego

Historic Shake Planned for NHERI Tallwood at UC San Diego

In the summer of 2022, the NHERI Tallwood team will demonstrate and validate their design methodology using a full-scale, 10-story mass-timber building on the newly upgraded LHPOST6 shake table at NHERI at UC San Diego. The Tallwood specimen, shown in this scale model animation, will be the world’s tallest full-scale building ever tested and the first major test on the NHERI at UC San Diego shake table, now capable of 6DOF ground motions.

NSF Renews $5M Natural Hazards Engineering Network Based in Purdue’s Discovery Park | NSF has formally renewed the Purdue-led Network Coordination Office (NCO) award to continue administrating the NHERI network from October 2021 through September 2025.

NHERI Lehigh Experimental Facility Expands Capabilities for Cyber-Physical Testing | Expanded lab space and new equipment for conducting cyber-physical experiments to open the door wide for researchers to explore structural mitigation solutions.


The Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) is a distributed national facility that enables research discoveries that will protect human life, reduce damage, and minimize economic losses during natural hazard events.



5 Year Science Plan

A roadmap for researchers in related disciplines working together to achieve common goals.

Analyze, Simulate & Share

The Workspace gives researchers the power to share and publish data, access tools for data analysis and visualization, and run simulations on state-of-the-art supercomputer resources.

Start Your Experiments

The NHERI Facilities offer access to shared-use experimental laboratories, field equipment, simulation tools, and a network of social science, engineering, and interdisciplinary researchers.

Expand Your Skills

The Learning Center offers training webinars from all NHERI components, as well as resources for students, post-docs, and early career researchers.
