Dr. Benjamin Fell, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at Sacramento State, will deliver the first presentation of the fall 2013 STEM Public Lecture Series. His talk is titled "The Earthquake-Proof Home: Is It in Our Future?"

Dr. Fell will discuss his research on alternative seismic fortification for light-frame (residential) structures. Test results obtained at Sacramento State from full-scale planar wall specimens subjected to earthquake-type loading provide efficacy for this system. The 20 full-scale tests represent the first phase of a three-phase, multi-year, National Science Foundation project in collaboration with Stanford University
