|Experiment Type:||Hybrid Simulation|
|Description:||This experiment summarizes real-time hybrid simulation (RTHS) performed at Lehigh University NEES facility. The RTHS tested a 9-story benchmark structure equipped with two MR dampers (installed in the 1st and 2nd stories, respectively), using the two alrge-scale MR dampers and the large-scale steel frame constructed in the lab at Lehigh. 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 adaptive actuator compensation scheme, and (4) design of the model-based feedforward-feedback actuator compensation scheme.
These tests were carried out from 05/25/2012 - 05/30/2012 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.
