Improving the resilience of civil infrastructure


Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI), a network of facilities at 11 universities across the country.

At these facilities, researchers are testing revolutionary concepts to protect civil infrastructure against natural hazards to prevent bigger disasters. 

New technology is being designed to improve buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure to make it more resilient against wind, water, and earthquake hazards.
