LARGEST SIMULATED 9.0 EARTHQUAKE TESTING AT UC SAN DIEGO

Mid-Rise Cold-Formed Steel Building Systems Built By SWS Panel and Truss To Be Tested by UCSD Engineering Dept. June 15, 2016

South Gate, CA, June 14, 2016: The University of California San Diego along with their partners including SWS Panel and Truss, the builders of the engineered Mid-Rise Cold-Formed Steel Building Wall Systems is preparing for the largest simulated earthquake testing on June 15 in San Diego, less than a week after a recorded 5.2 real earthquake took place in San Diego. During the past months in preparation (design & planning) and especially for the first phase of core structural system construction, which occurred remarkably within just over one week, the HUD-Industry Research Partnership sponsored test building in support of the investigation of Mid-Rise Cold-Formed Steel Building Systems is ready for media viewing and interviews.

We are happy to report that within the past week the tallest ever CFS-framed test building has been fully erected on the large outdoor shake table at UC San Diego. Over the next week the primarily interior construction will be equipped with seismic instrumentation of the building and its key structural components.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development, California Seismic Safety Commission, and more than 10 industry sponsors, including SWS Panel and Truss, partnered to perform a unique experimental research program. This research aims to evaluate the earthquake and post-earthquake fire performance of mid-rise CFS-building systems through full-scale earthquake and live thermal testing of a 6-story wall-braced system. Central to this effort is the construction of a full-scale portion of a 6-story CFS-wall braced building directly on the UCSD Large High Performance Outdoor Shake Table. Wall and floor systems for the building are assembled in a panelized fashion off-site at the SWS Panel and Truss Facility in South Gate, CA, thus the overall erection time of the building is dramatically reduced. The test building will be subjected to low amplitude white noise motions and sequentially increasing in amplitude earthquake motions. Subsequently, live thermal tests will be conducted on two floors of the building, in corridor and room like spaces strategically designed to investigate thermal patterns that develop due to reduced compartmentation ensued during the earthquake motions.

The Media is invited to view the Seismic Testing at UC San Diego on June 15, between nand 2 pm, and may film and take interviews of the event. Contact Caren@bsceneagency.com for media credentials.
