The NEES Sites Network 


NEES is proud to manage, operate, and maintain a unique national infrastructure on behalf of the National Science Foundation's NEES Program.

The infrastructure includes a system of fourteen shared experimental facilities that fall into five general categories, each enabling researchers to explore a different aspect of the complex way that soils and structures behave as a result of earthquakes and tsunamis.

What is a NEES Site? 

 

An Equipment site is one of the fourteen NEES equipment sites supported by NSF under the NEES Operations award to Purdue University. The responsibilities of the sites revolve around the support of new and existing research projects.

 

NEES Experiment Facilities

Happening Right Now 

  • Capstone Experimentation in the NEES Grand Challenge Project on the Seismic Response of Nonstructural Systems

    The capstone experimentation in the NEES Grand Challenge Project will begin in November 2012, using a two-story test bed frame with tunable dynamic properties mounted on multiple shake tables at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). The testing, under the direction of Principal Investigator Professor Manos Maragakis, who is also the Dean of the College of Engineering at UNR, will subject full-scale partitions, suspended ceilings, and sprinkler piping layouts, to earthquake motions. The test bed construction at UNR has been completed and the construction of the nonstructural systems is in the final stages of completion. For more information, visit this site.
