University of California, San Diego
Experimental Facility Workshop

December 12-13, 2016

NHERI@UC San Diego 2nd Users Training Workshop; including a community workshop to develop a large-scale protective system & hybrid simulation testbed structure

Hosted by the University of California, San Diego

A two-day training workshop will be offered to inform the hazards engineering community about the capabilities and resources available through the NHERI experimental facility at UC San Diego, specifically the Large High Performance Outdoor Shake Table (LHPOST). The workshop will inform potential users of the capabilities of the equipment as well as the required preparation to perform large-scale shake table testing. Attendees will be provided with the knowledge necessary to prepare research proposals utilizing the NHERI Experimental Facility at UC San Diego, which will increase their success rate in obtaining funding and therefore increase usage of this national resource. The workshop will be conducted in conjunction with a community workshop to design a reconfigurable testbed structure for future users seeking to test protective systems and/or implement hybrid simulation strategies.

Final Agenda (including details regarding lodging) (98.7 KB)

Support for travel will be offered to select participants, with preference given to younger scholars who have an interest immediate proposal preparation and use of the facility.
