NSF NHERI Coastal Hazards Engineering New User Workshop

The 2017 workshop has concluded. 

Location: Kearney Hall, Room 112, Oregon State University Campus, Corvallis, Oregon

Description: The purpose of this two-day workshop is to introduce new users to the NHERI Experimental Facility at Oregon State University, to discuss the coastal hazards engineering science plan, to introduce related NHERI components (the NCO, DesignSafe, RAPID, and SimCenter), and to discuss NSF funding opportunities for Coastal Hazards Engineering and proposal preparation. On day one, there will be a series of presentations by former and current researchers funded through the NSF NEES and NHERI programs. These presentations will focus on how the experimental facility was used to achieve their research objectives, aspects of the experimental design, challenges with new/unique instrumentation, use of numerical modeling to inform the experimental design, data archiving, and new results. On day two, there will be a tour of the NHERI Experimental Facility at the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory, discussion of the NHERI Science Plan, presentation of related NHERI components, and discussion about NSF funding opportunities and proposal preparation.
