Testing Ways to Protect Against Natural Hazards: NHERI

The National Science Foundation's NHERI Experimental Facilities allow researchers to test ground-breaking concepts to protect our infrastructure against natural hazards and enable innovations that help prevent natural hazards from becoming societal disasters. Water, energy and communication systems; buildings, tunnels and industrial facilities; and national security all depend on their ability to withstand natural forces. To help better understand and resist the impacts of earthquake, wind and water hazards, NHERI provides a network of shared, state-of-the-art research facilities and tools located at universities around the country.
