Simulation of the newly opened Bay Bridge in San Francisco in an earthquake. Pretty interesting to see the engineering that allows the bridge to twist and flex.

This visualization shows the collapse of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, part of Washingtons State Route 99, and adjacent seawall due to a seismic event. The simulated earthquake is similar to the 2001 Nisqually earthquake but lasts longer, is closer to Seattle, or has a slightly greater magnitude.

The largest ‘quake table’ in the world is used to simulate devastating earthquakes at the University of California.

This simulation highlights what might happen in the event of a complete and catastrophic failure of the west approach to the SR 520 Floating Bridge. An earthquake could render the bridges unusable.
