New fields of research in earthquake engineering experimentation

Objective

Description:

Objectives: To pursue research in the following 6 areas of earthquake engineering:
1. Controlled testing in the non-linear range of material behaviour;
2. The complementarity of shaking tables and reaction walls;
3. Reliability of qualification tests performed on shaking tables;
4. Sub-structuring methods on shaking tables;
5. Multiple support input to large structures;
6. Continuous pseudodynamic testing with substructuring.

Results:The research programme starts on 1 December 2001
