This film database provides links to a number of videos related to dynamic tests conducted at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in the 80s. Detailed descriptions of test setups, specimen drawings, instrumentation layouts, digital measurement data files (in *.csv format), and related documentation are also provided. All this information constitutes a rich resource that can be used to calibrate numerical models and test hypotheses related to the seismic response of RC structures. The documentation provided is exhaustive and should contain every detail required for such tests and calibrations. The scale of the experiments included in the database facilitated the use of instrumentation seldom available in full-scale structures. The conditions of the tests were controlled to allow for reduced uncertainty in calibrations and hypothesis tests.
