Research overview

The structural engineering and mechanics faculty at Illinois are very active in cutting research to improve the performance of structural systems. Summaries of experimental research done in Newmark Structural Engineering Laboratory and the NEES MUST-SIM testing facility can be seen by clicking on the links given to the left. Also earthquake engineering research done at the Mid-America Earthquake (MAE) Center can be seen by visiting the MAE website, also provided with a link to the left. Apart from these laboratories and center, the structures faculty are involved in many individual research projects - many of which are referenced on webpages for individual faculty members.


Research reports prepared by Illinois Structures faculty are available for download at the IDEALS web page.
