Document Description
UC Davis proposes to construct and operate an approximately 4,700 gross square foot building to support research activities at the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Centrifuge site. The building would be located adjacent to the existing centrifuge facility near the hydraulics laboratory west of Brooks Road on the west campus. The proposed building would include space for offices, a conference and computer area, and space for preparing testing materials. The building would be constructed on a concrete foundation with a steel frame structure, metal panel sheathing, and a metal panel roof. Project elements surrounding the building would include a new gravel area for employee parking, a new gravel entrance drive, and a new septic system. Centrifuge modeling is a tool for studying the effects of ground shaking on critical structures. The centrifuge applies an increased gravitational acceleration to physical models in order to produce identical self-weight stresses in the models and prototypes. Centrifuge model testing provides data to improve the understanding of soil deformation and failure and provides benchmarks to verify numerical models.
