UAS Examine Quake Damage in Napa valley

Researchers from UC San Diego’s structural engineering department are using drones to capture unique views of the earthquake damage to Napa’s historic landmarks.The team is using the images to generate 3D models of the sites. “As tragic as this seismic event this earthquake was, it is also a very powerful learning tool which allows us to study how buildings have responded to the ground shaking — how they’ve been damaged,” said Falko Kuester, a structural engineering professor at UC San Diego.
