University of California, Davis
Experimental Facility Workshop

May 12, 2017

The Center for Geotechnical Modeling will be hosting a one-day centrifuge users’ workshop at the NHERI equipment facility at UC Davis on Friday, May 12th, 2017. The workshop will include tours and lectures by UC Davis personnel and past outside users that will allow participants to understand the capabilities of the centrifuge facility, explore research opportunities and challenges, and discuss specific details toward developing proposals.

Participation will be limited and priority registration will be given to (1) faculty planning to submit or participate in the development of NSF proposals to use the centrifuge facility at UC Davis; (2) research team members currently funded to use the centrifuge facility; (3) other individuals interested in learning about the NHERI equipment facility at UC Davis.

TRAVEL SUPPORT NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Limited travel support will be available for workshop participants and those interested in receiving travel support should indicate so using the workshop registration form on this page. Participants receiving funds will be reimbursed for actual expenses up to a pre-assigned threshold of $1000 (junior faculty) or $500 (senior faculty). Currently-funded NSF research teams are expected to support their travel costs within their existing research funds.

Please contact Dan Wilson, Associate Director of the Center for Geotechnical Modeling, with any questions regarding the workshop or the equipment facility.
