Title: Performance-Based Design and Real-Time Large-Scale Testing to Enable Implementation of Advanced Damping Systems (NEES-2008-0648)
Year Of Curation: 2013
Description: Advanced structural damping systems such as magnetorheological (MR) dampers have great potential improve our ability to achieve performance-based structural design (PBD) directed towards seismic resilience. However, developing methods for real-time hybrid (RTH) testing of these systems is essential to enable the validation of these approaches. In this NEESR project, large-scale structural models, controlled with MR devices are being tested at the Lehigh RTMD NEES Equipment Site using RTH techniques.
