About the Meeting

Natural hazards researchers are welcome to attend the fourth research meeting between NHERI and Japan’s National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED).

The virtual meeting will cover current and upcoming collaborations between NHERI and NIED/E-Defense, which operates the 3D Full-Scale Earthquake Testing Facility, called E-Defense.

The session will cover details of the Third Test of the Tokyo Metropolitan Resilience Project (Steel Structure) and the full-scale spine test by NSF-funded researchers under this collaboration on the E-Defense shake table. Meeting participants will also receive information on aspects and explore possible opportunities to collaborate with our colleagues from Japan on the Fourth Test (Non-Structural Elements) of the Tokyo Metropolitan Resilience Project. Updates will be provided on the collaboration during the First (Wood Structure) and the Second (Reinforced Concrete Structure) Tests previously conducted under the same collaboration.
