Shake Test Movie on Union Tribune Blog

Thirty seconds of footage from last week's shake test of a metal building out at the Englekirk Structural Engineering Center is playing on the new science/technology/defense blog at the Union Tribune called Science Quest.

Stay tuned for more video and more into on the shake.

From the media advisory:

"Metal building systems make up a large portion of new low-rise, non-residential construction today. These systems are designed to be extremely efficient and their performance in earthquakes has been excellent over the years because they are strong, flexible and light in weight."
