Husker High-Rise succeeds in earthquake resistance competition


Out of 22 schools from across the U.S. and Canada, the UNL team finished third overall in the 2010 University Seismic Design Team competition held in January. Results were based on overall presentation and poster, architecture of a model, performance predictions and the model’s structural performance under earthquake excitation. "The event was a great opportunity to show that Nebraska has what it takes when it comes to earthquake-resistant engineering," said Durham AE student and team leader John Tran. "Most of the winners from past years have been schools from California or the West Coast."
