Presentations

  • Saiidi, M., "A New Era in Earthquake Engineering of Bridges at UNR through NSF-NEES," Nevada Department of Transportation, Carson City , Nevada , December 2004.
  • Saiidi, M., "A New Era in Earthquake Engineering of Bridges at UNR through NSF-NEES," California Department of Transportation, Sacramento , California , December 2004.
  • Shake table testing of a two-span, 70-ft long bridge model funded by a pre-NEESR project was web cast. The earthquake engineering research community and state departments of transportation were informed about the test. More than 50 individuals observed the live test through the web.
