Wind Hazard & Earthquake Engineering Lab:Research and Outreach

Florida A&M University – Florida State University

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

NSF/MCEER Site Visit 2003

introduction
Introduction
  • The Wind Hazard and Earthquake Engineering Lab is located at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering campus.
  • WHEEL was established in 1999 as part of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
  • The lab’s goal is to promote research in wind hazard and earthquake engineering.
introduction1
Introduction
  • WHEEL conducts research, publishes reports and articles, and provides partial financial support for students.
  • Some of the research interests include:
    • passive and active structural control,
    • sensor/actuator placement using genetic algorithms,
    • damage mitigation assessment after natural disasters,
    • computational fluid dynamics for the design and analysis of structures exposed to high winds,
    • structural health monitoring,
    • mitigation of pounding.
student researchers
Student Researchers
  • 4 Ph.D. students, 2 Graduate students and 4 Undergraduate students
  • Journal articles published in the Journal of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics
  • Invited Presentations of Results at conferences in Los Angeles, St. Louis, and Tokyo, Japan.
mceer research
MCEER Research
  • “An Earthquake Analysis of an Existing Structure in the Southeast Region of the United States”
  • Structural Description:
    • Florida Department of Education Building
    • 17 story steel frame (3 bay x 10 bay)
    • FEM model developed
  • Passive Control
    • No external inputs to function
    • Tuned mass damper and Base Isolator
  • Damage Approximation
    • Damage functions, HAZUS
education
Education
  • Developed lab experiments and demonstrations using a small scale shaking table
  • Information was published as a part of the University Consortium of Instructional Shaking Tables (UCIST)
  • Structural Dynamics has been integrated into the Civil Engineering Mechanics course at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering
reu programs
REU Programs
  • Undergraduate students conduct research in the areas of wind and earthquake engineering.
  • Program concludes with the submission of final reports and oral presentations.

REU Summer 1999

REU Summer 2000

REU Summer 2001

outreach
Outreach
  • Developed a short course on engineering and natural hazards for elementary school teachers and their students
  • Students participate in the two week program to help test the course curriculum
  • Students wrote papers on natural hazards, built buildings with LEGOS, and tested them on the shaking table
