We're shaking things up when it comes to earthquake engineering. Our world-class facilities, which are currently undergoing a more than $30 million expansion, offer researchers state-of-the-art equipment and laboratory space to conduct cutting-edge research. The result? Engineered structures that are better able to withstand an earthquake's destructive force, saving both lives and money.
Want to see our past projects? You can also browse our YouTube channel for a collection of videos from recent experiments.
Our facilities have been used to test bridges, buildings and non-structural systems.
Learn more about how researchers have used our lab in our project archive.
Visiting researchers can take advantage of our world-class engineering research facilities.
NEES@Nevada provides visiting researchers a number of services.
We're part of Nevada's College of Engineering, a nationally recognized institution.
The NEES@University of Nevada, Reno equipment site is funded in part by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
