12:00-1:00 PM Pacific Time
Join EERI’s Younger Members Committee for a FREE webinar on Real-time hybrid simulation for earthquake induced motions and cascading earthquake and tsunami events, featuring two speakers:
- Dr. Barbara Simpson, Assistant Professor, Stanford University
- Dr. Liang Cao, Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems (ATLSS) Engineering Research Center, Lehigh University
The first presentation will focus on real-time hybrid simulation (RTHS), a cost-effective cyber-physical simulation method that can be used to examine the behavior of systems too large or complex to test fully in a laboratory setting, alleviating the aforementioned constraints. Hydrodynamic-RTHS, or hydro-RTHS, couples physical waves and a partial structural specimen with a computational structural model in the NHERI-EF Large Wave Flume and Multi-Direction Wave Basin at Oregon State University (OSU). The second presentation will focus on recent developments of new types of high-performance control systems (HPCSs), including robust semi-active friction devices. The vibration mitigation performance of HPCSs is investigated through Real-time Hybrid Simulations (RTHS) on an earthquake-excited two-story reinforced concrete building.
