Discovery - Video
A roughly 8.0 magnitude earthquake is applied to a conventional steel and concrete bridge.

To test the performance of the smart materials, a shake table test was conducted on columns constructed with each material. Here, a roughly 8.0 magnitude earthquake is applied to a conventional steel and concrete bridge. (The results were later compared to the data collected for the smart material tests.)
