Structural engineers at the University of California, Los Angeles are hoping to design earthquake-resistance buildings and communities. They are using data and computer modeling to design structures able to withstand major earthquake events. These models are meant to guide safety inspections following earthquakes and help engineers locate “hotspots” more quickly. Part of the “Science Nation” series.
