UC San Diego Engineers Bring Down the House

submitted by: ucsandiego

Recent simulated earthquake tests conducted by UC San Diego engineers are expected to lead to retrofit schemes that make historic buildings safer. The structural engineers tested a structure similar to those that were built in California in the 1920s that have masonry-infilled walls and reinforced concrete frames.

Effect of Heterogeneous Prestress on Near-Field Rupture Directivity Andrew Gritz M.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Steven Day To supplement the very limited number of strong motion recordings in areas near to earthquake sources, numerical modeling of the rupture process and radiated seismic energy was carried out to study such ground motion. The near fault region is susceptible to very strong shaking both because of proximity to the...

Control and Regulation of Stem Cells with Richard Young Interviewed by Catherine Cormier

Richard Young’s research combines novel high-throughput biological methods with new computational techniques to investigate the mechanisms that control genes in living cells. Recent results from his group include the discovery of the core regulatory circuitry of human embryonic stem cells and insights into the mechanisms that control human development. Dr. Young believes that knowledge of regulatory circuitry will provide the foundation for future therapeutic strategies against major human...
