Simulation of the Seismic Performance of Nonstructural Systems
NEES Nonstructural - Simulation of the Seismic Performance of Nonstructural Systems
Produced by CUREE for the NSF funded NEES Nonstructural Grand Challenge Project. This five-part video provides an overview of the entire project, including interviews with project managers, as well as many of the students who participated on this project.
PART 1 - Overview (featuring Professor Manos Maragakis, PI for this project) - Total Time: 2:04
PART 2 - Experimental Simulations - Total Time: 4:06
Professor André Filiatrault talks about the experimental studies portion of the NEES Nonstructural project. Examples of ceiling, piping, and partition (wall) testing are shown.
PART 3 - Experiment-based Simulations - Total Time: 2:08
Professor Tara Hutchinson talks about Experiment-based Simulations and how they relate to System- and Component-level experiments.
PART 4 - Student Participation - Total Time: 6:40
Student researchers talk about their experiences working on the NEES Nonstructural Project.
PART 5 - Practicing Engineers - Total Time: 2:10
Bill Holmes, S.E. (Rutherford & Chekene) discusses the outcomes of the NEES Nonstructural Project and its impact on the practicing engineering community.
