>Subject: Earthquake Construction
>I work as a business consultant to startup ventures and to inventors trying
>to commercialize their inventions.
>One of my clients (a construction engineer by profession) has developed a
>novel method of building construction said to prevent earthquake damage. The
>method makes it possible for the structure to withstand vertical, lateral,
>torsional and oscillatory forces. The idea is ingenious but simple.
>My client has tested the idea on scale models, and has applied for a US
>The next stage is to test the invention on real structures, which is clearly
>is beyond the financial capabilities of a single person. The incidence of
>earthquakes in Israel is low, and they rarely cause any serious damage.
>Therefore, there does not seem to be a center dedicated to earthquake
>construction research. I do not think that I will be able to work up any
>enthusiasm by local constructors. I am writing to you in the hope that you
>will direct me to a suitable organization in the USA.
>I am looking for an organization that has the resources to test the idea,
>and sufficient credibility and force to introduce it into state and national
>contruction codes.
>Can you help me with this quest?
>Thank you and kind regards,
