Prestigious CAREER Award Will Help Engineering Professor Better Understand How Earthquakes Impact Foundations

Tara Hutchinson, assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) of $430,000. Hutchinson will use the five year grant to study a phenomena known as liquefaction, and particularly its impact on flexible pile foundations during intense earthquake shaking. Liquefaction-induced damage has been extensive in recent earthquakes, such as the 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake in Japan and the 1999 Koceali earthquake in Turkey.
