University Revolutionizing Structural Disaster Prevention
 
“Now we can use a 1:40 scale model that is 65 meters long instead of three meters long,” Dr. Yang said. “We can design our model and configure the tables to fit the test instead of the other way around. It’s very convenient for our researchers. They can get the data they want most, instead of settling for the next best thing.” 
- Dr. Chengyu Yang, Research Division for Seismic Design of Bridges, Department of Bridge Engineering, Tongji University
