Villanova University's Civil Engineering Department participated in this project funded by the National Science Foundation:

2002- Using Viscoelastic Material to Reduce the Dynamic Response of Woodframe Structures
The objective in this research project is to develop an advanced panel system for improving the seismic performance of wood frame structures using thin laminates of viscoelastic (VE) damping materials. The VE will be integrated into the lateral load resisting system of the structure material between the wall frame and the sheathing and/or finishing material.
