Composites Center Comments On Use Of Blast-Resistant Structures In Earthquake Zones

The blast-resistant technology developed at the UMaine’s AEWC Advanced Structures and Composites Center could also be used in areas where earthquakes occur, officials at the center told WLBZ television. Center Director Habib Dagher and Larry Parent, assistant director of operations and program management, who were interviewed for the story, said blast-resistant structures have been tested to see how they withstand bomb and mortar attacks, but could stand up to the shaking caused by earthquakes.
