NHERI Research at the 17WCEE

Published on August 12, 2021


Natural hazards engineers know the World Conference in Earthquake Engineering as the “Olympics of earthquake engineering” since this major meeting takes place every four years.

At the upcoming 17WCEE in Sendai, Japan (Sept. 27 through Oct. 2), many NHERI researchers are presenting their work. Hats off to all those demonstrating the impact of our NSF-funded facilities.
