Hybrid simulation is a powerful class of experimental techniques that couples physical experimentation with computational simulation. This approach enables a detailed examination of complex engineering systems while imposing realistic conditions on the selected, often unknown, physical subsystems. Originally pioneered in the field of earthquake engineering, this approach is increasingly being adopted and utilized for a variety of purposes in our laboratories. This webinar will provide an introduction to the range of methods in this class, the essential components needed to perform a hybrid simulation, a few recent experiments performed using this method, and a readily available sample code / learning tool that is available.
The webinar is intended for new users to gain experience with the use of real-time hybrid simulation.
This webinar is the first in a series, Hybrid Simulation 101, being organized by the Multi-hazard Engineering Collaboratory on Hybrid Simulation (MECHS) virtual community.
