110-foot Concrete Bridge Model Withstands Large Earthquake Simulation (image) University of Nevada, Reno Share Print E-Mail Caption The 200-ton, four-span bridge was built over several months atop the 14-foot square shake tables at the world-renowned University of Nevada, Reno large-structures lab. The innovative bridge was hit with nine increasingly more powerful earthquakes over several days, and survived, giving researchers reams of data collected from sensors through 350 channels.
