Dan Zehner is back with us from the Design Safe Radio Podcast to give us updates on what they’re doing to research and create better and more resilient building materials. Dan works with the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) program, funded by the National Science Foundation, which catalyzes advances in natural hazards engineering research.
Dan brings us some the latest updates in building materials design and testing to keep our communities safe and resilient in the face of disasters. In addition to testing of structures and structural materials, NHERI facilities test natural forces and events to better understand the phenomena at work in these events. The NHERI facilities are scattered in colleges and university research centers around the country. Each of them focus on specific types of events and structural components.
Disaster Never Sleeps, Neither Do We
We will be bringing you more special updates from our Disaster Podcast team members as we get them in from around the world.
