Strategic Goal: Disaster-Resilient Buildings, Infrastructure, and Communities
Reduce the risk and enhance the resilience of buildings, infrastructure, and communities to natural and manmade hazards through advances in measurement science.
With a large percentage of the nation's buildings and infrastructure clustered in disaster-prone regions, EL is developing measurement methods, models, and predictive tools that will help to make buildings, infrastructural systems, and entire communities safer and more resilient in the face of natural and human-made hazards.
Through research that stretches the limits of measurement science and pushes the envelope of current measurement and test capabilities, EL will:
