Joint NHERI@UC San Diego –
RAPID Researcher Workshop

December 14-15, 2020 | 8:00am - 12:30pm PST

The Joint NHERI@UC San Diego – RAPID Researcher Workshop is being hosted by the NHERI@UC San Diego Large High-Performance Outdoor Shake Table (LHPOST6) Facility to bring together researchers and prospective users of the NHERI@UC San Diego and RAPID facilities and equipment.

The workshop will identify how the facilities can help address grand challenge earthquake engineering research needs and highlight future research directions that may benefit from deploying the state of the art RAPID equipment in projects using the newly upgraded 6-DOF LHPOST. We invite experts and leaders in the field, including practitioners, academics, and representatives from the construction industry to participate in the workshop taking place over two mornings.

The first day will feature a series of presentations showcasing the capabilities and available equipment of both facilities and outlining best practices for proposal preparation. The second day consists of virtual tours and hands-on videos of the shake table facility and the equipment available at RAPID, presentations demonstrating the new features of both facilities, as well as panelist presentations and open discussion regarding potential future collaboration and research.
