HybridSimulation-4: RTHS (Frame + Damper) - 9StoryBM - Single MR Damper (Floor 1)
Experiment Type: Hybrid Simulation
Description: This experiment summarizes real-time hybrid simulation (RTHS) performed at Lehigh University NEES facility. The purpose of this testing four-fold: (1) validate the performance of a new semi-active control algorithms developed during the project, (2) identification of the designed-braced frame built in the Lehigh lab, (3) design of the Inverse actuator compensation scheme, and (4) design of the model-based feedforward-feedback actuator compensation scheme.

These tests were carried out from 04/24/2012 - 05/02/2012 at the NEES@Lehigh facility, with the assistance of Gary Novak, Tommy Maurullo, and the rest of the staff at the ATLSS lab. The lab is supervised by Dr. James Ricles.

Further information regarding the specific tests and their purpose can be found in the descriptions of the "runs", under the experiment coordinator.
