MCEER and Structural Control Partners Explore “Offshore” Opportunities
Several of MCEER’s structural control technology partners joined with center investigators on December 14, 2006 at a seminar for representatives of the offshore oil industry, in Houston, Texas. Advanced Technologies for the Seismic and Multi-Hazard Design and Retrofit of Offshore Structures, Industrial Structures and LNG Tanks focused on the development and application of structural control technologies such as seismic isolation and damping in both civil infrastructure and on oil and gas industry structures. The program attracted more than 30 participants, including MCEER Strategic Partnerships Network members Dynamic Isolation Systems, Earthquake Protection Systems and Taylor Devices. MCEER extends a special thanks to ExxonMobil for hosting the program at its Upstream Technical Training Center.
