John Lawson & Peter Laursen Present Research in Chile

jan 9, 2017 - jan 13, 2017

Faculty members John Lawson and Peter Laursen attended and presented papers at the 16th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (16WCEE) in Santiago, Chile from January 9-13. This gathering of international seismic engineering experts occurs only once every four years. John Lawson presented "An Alternative Procedure for the Seismic Design of Buildings with Rigid Walls and Flexible Diaphragms: FEMA P-1026" (John Lawson, Dominic Kelly, Maria Koliou, André Filiatrault) in a session on floor diaphragm in-plane seismic behavior and design. He was also the co-author of the paper “Roof Diaphragm Distributed Yielding Concept for Improved Seismic Collapse Performance of Buildings with Rigid Walls and Flexible Roof Diaphragms” (Maria Koliou, André Filiatrault, Dominic J. Kelly, John Lawson). Peter Laursen presented paper, “Structural Damage Detection Through Forced Vibration Testing” (Peter Laursen, William Rosenblatt, Peter Laursen, Cole McDaniel, Graham Archer) in a session on structural health monitoring in earthquake engineering.

Here are their published articles:
