The Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES),
administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is scheduled
to become operational in 2004. These network sites will perform a
range of experiments to test and validate complex computer models
being developed to simulate the behavior of structures subjected to
earthquakes. To assist in this effort, the NSF requested the
National Research Council (NRC) to frame the major questions to be
addressed by and to develop a long-term research agenda for NEES.
"Preventing Earthquake Disasters presents an overview of the grand
challenge, including six critical research problems making up that
challenge. The report also provides an assessment of earthquake
engineering research issues and the role of information technology
in that research effort, and a research plan for NEES.
