Computational Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology Laboratory

George P. Mavroeidis

Description

Our research focuses on the areas of engineering seismology, earthquake engineering and structural dynamics, and includes topics related to mechanics and physics of earthquakes, characterization of earthquake ground motions, deterministic and stochastic ground motion simulations, fracture and frictional processes, seismic hazard and risk analysis, soil-structure interaction, computational modeling, and dynamic response of engineering structures.

Facilities

The laboratory is located in 155 Fitzpatrick Hall, and serves as the primary venue for basic research and education in the areas of earthquake engineering and engineering seismology. It is equipped with state-of-the-art workstations and various software applications for modeling and simulation of earthquake ground motions and dynamic structural response.
