A test specimen for the Englekirk Center, this structure was outfitted with two hospital rooms, steel stairs, an elevator, roof top mechanical equipment and exterior skin. The structure was tested on a shake table with and without base isolators. The Center is also adjacent to the country’s largest soil-structure interaction facility, which allow researchers to perform dynamic earthquake safety tests on full-scale structural systems.
