Investigate and report on the performance of masonry structures following a disaster.
Send a reconnaissance team to the site of significant natural or man-made disasters to investigate the impact on masonry structures. The team will then prepare a report on the investigation.
Investigations have been conducted: following the Northridge Earthquake, in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina, Opal and Fran, and following a series of Tornadoes in Tennessee . Reports were prepared following most of these investigations; the reports were marketed through TMS. The team also conducts training workshops.
