NHERI's Dan Zehner chats with THWARTS attendees.

Dan Zehner, NHERI NCO facility scheduling and operations coordinator, and Seungwook Seok, research assistant at Purdue University, attended the Tornado Hazard Wind Assessment and Reduction Symposium (THWARTS), October 14 and 15.

Using the newly minted NHERI conference booth, the pair promoted the network resources for world-class physical and cyberphysical testing capabilities.

The booth provides a large visual representation of the network and a focal point for discussions with conference attendees. NHERI researcher Elaina Sutley, also chair of the User Forum, was one of many who brought over colleagues to discuss opportunities for groundbreaking research in the area of tornadic wind storm hazard reduction.
