Evaluating natural resources

Monday, October 5, 2015

A UT Arlington researcher is developing a comprehensive, reliability-based framework to analyze North Texas dams and detect damage from seismic activity, reported. Anand Puppala, a professor of civil engineering and associate dean for research in UT Arlington’s College of Engineering, is overseeing a three-year, $1 million project from the Tarrant Regional Water District to analyze data taken at the Eagle Mountain Lake dam, which he will then use to create a framework that future investigators can use to determine if a dam has sustained damage from earthquakes.
