Faculty proposal accepted for earthquake research study
Dr. Ashraf Elsayed, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Dr. Shivan Haran, Mechanical Engineering, are the recipients of a $30,000 research grant from State Farm Insurance that will be directed toward their research study, "Shear Wave Velocity Profiling and Soil Liquefaction Hazard Analysis." Jonesboro is situated within the New Madrid Seismic Zone, an area including eight states, and so is potentially vulnerable to an earthquake. State Farm also supports earthquake awareness efforts in Missouri and Tennessee. The grant was awarded yesterday at the Judd Hill Center, home of the ASU Foundation, Inc.
