Example Research: ‘06 GC on Ports

  • Multi-disciplinary problem of national and international importance

  • Multi-site, multi-partner team (engineering, logistics, social sciences)

  • Buy-in and involvement from community from proposal stage

  • Systems approach that emphasizes implementation

Socio-Economic Impact & Decision Support


Neesinc mission 1 innovation
NEESinc Mission 1: Innovation Social Fabric

Revolutionize earthquake engineering research and education by:

  • Providing access to the world's largest and most advanced experimental facilities

  • Operating an IT infrastructure capable of integrating lab experiments with computer models

  • Motivating the research community to collaborate using a shared, web-based environment

  • Fostering the open exchange of data and information among researchers and practicing engineers

  • Creating active programs of education and outreach committed to improving seismic safety


Neesinc mission 2 earthquake risk mitigation
NEESinc Mission 2: Earthquake Risk Mitigation Social Fabric

  • Engineering/Construction of Resilient Infrastructure is Best Strategy:

    • Complements land use, earthquake preparedness, and emergency response

    • Great strides have been made but Cost-Effectiveness is still an issue

    • From prescriptive codes to performance-based design

  • Success Requires:

    • Effective Design Tools for Hazard ID Coordination

    • Cost-Effective Engineering Solutions Research

    • Political Skill and Will Leadership

    • Good Construction/Maintenance Practices Partnership
