NEESR: Performance-Based Design and Real-Time Large-Scale Testing to Enable Implementation of Advanced Damping Systems

Status: Specimen Instrumentation [Video Stream]
Planned for 2011-05-01 12:00 EST

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 h... [more]

NEESR-CR: Performance-Based Design for Cost-Effective Seismic Hazard Mitigation in New Buildings Using Supplemental Passive Damper Systems

Status: Active Testing
Planned for 2011-03-22 12:00 EST

The vision for this research is a validated probabilistic, performance-based seismic design procedure for buildings with passive damping systems. In this procedure, the design of the damping system is integrated with the design of the associated seis... [more]

NEESR-SG: Self-Centering Damage-Free Seismic-Resistant Steel Frame Sys

Status: Completed
Planned for 2010-01-13 16:30 EST

The project is investigating a family of innovative self-centering (SC) steel frame systems with the potential to withstand the currently accepted design basis earthquake (DBE) for buildings without damage. The project goals are: to develop fundament... [more]

Devel. Of Advanced Servo-Hydraulic Control And Testbed For Real-time

Status: Completed
Planned for 2009-06-15 10:00 EST

Recently there have been a number of new devices developed that enables structural systems to withstand earthquake loading with minimal damage. Examples of these devices include passive dampers and semi-active dampers. In order to evaluate the seismi... [more]

Development of a Seismic Design Methodology for Precast Floor Diaphrag

Status: Completed
Planned for 2007-11-08 10:30 EST

A consortium comprised of the University of Arizona (UA), the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and Lehigh University (LU), together with the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), is conducting a collaborative research project to dev... [more]

Multi-Site Soil-Structure-Foundation Interaction Test (MISST)

Status: Completed
Planned for 2006-05-16 07:00 EST

MISST is intended to provide a realistic test bed application with which to verify and extend all components of the NEESgrid as well as all components of the sites taking part in the distributed simulation. Concurrently, it is intended to extend the... [more]

Investigation of Prototype Elastomeric Damper Characteristics

Status: Completed
Planned for 2006-04-14 10:45 EST

The main purpose of this study is to determine the material properties and performance of prototype elastomeric dampers developed by Penn State Erie and Corry Rubber Company, with the goal of helping to create recommendations for improvement upon the... [more]
