2018-2019 Scholar Amory Martin, Stanford University, Groundbreaking Research in Topology Optimization

Posted on Monday, September 17, 2018

ARCS Scholar Amory Martin is pursuing his PhD from Stanford University. His research focuses on using topology optimization to design more efficient and earthquake-resistant structures, particularly self-centering rocking systems in high-rise buildings. Amory presented his research at the ARCS Northern California Chapter's Fall general meeting. With recent news of the earthquake safety of building in San Francisco there was a lot of interest in Amory's work and the buildings his technology can help design or retrofit.
