Leader in seismic testing
Armstrong has partnered with The University at Buffalo to test our products for seismic performance. These tests are performed at the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory (SEESL) located in Ketter Hall. SEESL is a key equipment site in a nationwide earthquake engineering collaborator – the National Science Foundation’s George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES). This network allows earthquake engineers and students from different institutions to share resources, collaborate on testing and exploit new computational technologies.
