MECHS Series: Hybrid Simulation 101

December 14, 2018 | 2PM - 2:45PM CT

Real-time hybrid simulation (RTHS) is an effective and versatile tool for the examination of complex structural systems with rate dependent behaviors. To meet the objectives of such a test, appropriate consideration must be given to the partitioning of the system into physical and computational portions (i.e., the configuration of RTHS). This webinar will explain the steps to take for choosing the partitioning to use in RTHS, a fundamental step towards successful RTHS implementation. As a case study, this methodology will be demonstrated using the recent Benchmark control problem for real-time hybrid simulation which has been recently presented to the RTHS community to enable community-wide examination to compare and contrast various methods for the design of a robust RTHS controller.

The webinar is intended for new users to gain experience with hybrid simulation.

This webinar is part of a series, Hybrid Simulation 101, being organized by the Multi-hazard Engineering Collaboratory on Hybrid Simulation (MECHS) virtual community.
