The local Vancouver Organizing Committee is planning several interesting field trips, including the following:

  • University of British Columbia lab tour - The UBC lab tour will be a guided tour of the testing facilities including the Earthquake Engineering Research Facility (EERF), the structural testing laboratory, and the SIERA: Sustainable Infrastructure Research Group testing facility. This tour will include a shake table testing demo using the Multi-Axis Shake Table (MAST) at EERF.  Tour attendees will be given the opportunity to discuss the current/ongoing experimental works with the research staff and the graduate students at the facility.  Limit of 30 attendees. 
  • Vancouver House walking tour
  • Bus tour of Retrofitted Schools
  • St. George's School structural retrofit tour

Detailed tour information coming soon; sign-ups for tours will be included on the Registration page after 10/15/18.

The objective of EERI is to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering; improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment; and advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.
