MCEER Researchers & Partners Team up for Seminar on Seismic Protection of Piping
A number of MCEER researchers, industry partners and industry colleagues are teaming up to take part in a seminar on seismic piping protection for New York plumbing contractors, architects, engineers and code officials. The program, organized by the Plumbing Contractors Association of Long Island, is planned for late summer/early fall of this year.
The MCEER segment of the program is titled “Seismic Resilience of Nonstructural Components and Piping Systems.” It will include presentations from MCEER industry partner ISAT Seismic Bracing, a provider of nonstructural component and piping restraint systems; consulting engineer Robert E. Bachman; and MCEER investigators Manos Maragakis of the University of Nevada, Reno, and Gilberto Mosqueda of the University at Buffalo.
