Experimental Testing

      NYA stands as a trailblazing force in advanced seismic design and building retrofit, consistently integrating cutting-edge insights from extensive research and experimental testing into our methodologies and design solutions. The driving force behind our success is in our team of experts.

      Our team, collectively renowned for its expertise, has spearheaded four major experimental seismic testing programs dedicated to enhancing structural systems and components. Thanks to our unwavering commitment to excellence, we ensure the delivery of collaborative, cutting edge solutions in seismic engineering.

     The experimental work of Dr. Panagiotou, former Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering at U.C. Berkeley, has resulted in eight publications in premier earthquake, and structural engineering journals, and is cited in standards such as ASCE7, ASCE41, and LATBSDC guidelines.

     Our cadre of experts, with their advances founded upon a bedrock of collaboration and expertise, has propelled NYA to the forefront of advanced seismic design. We are unwaveringly committed to delivering innovative and effective solutions to incorporate into our projects and advance the field of earthquake engineering.
