RTHS being performed this week
February 21, 2013
RTHS of a Large-scale Steel Structure with Nonlinear Viscous Dampers will take place February 21 – 22, 2013 between 1 and 4 pm EST. The RTHS test matrix includes conducting a series of simulations using an ensemble of 13 earthquake records at the design basis earthquake (DBE) level. Each of record will be scaled to the DBE seismic hazard level. The RTHS can be viewed by telepresence, where webcams and the Real-Time Data Viewer can be used to view video, data and animation of the response of the building acquired from the RTHS. To remotely participate, go to the following link (http://www.nees.lehigh.edu/rths-of-mrf-dbf-system-with-viscous-dampers). Result (including video) from completed tests will also be archived and available at the previous link and through the Project Warehouse on NEES.org. Also, follow us on Facebook to get up to the minute simulation updates from our research team.
