Professor McCormick in earthquake engineering video

Associate Professor Jason McCormick is in a new MConnex video titled, “Make It Earthquake-Proof.” | Short Read

The video explains that modern structures are designed to absorb damages without collapsing, but an event like an earthquake can quickly escalate construction repair costs for aging buildings. CEE researchers are looking into materials rarely used in the construction world for retro-fitting older structures and providing a type of affordable earthquake insulation barrier.
