NHERI@UCSD 3rd Annual
User Workshop

The University of California, San Diego
December 11, 2017  |  8am - 5pm

Workshop Scope:

The NHERI Experimental Facility at UC San Diego is hosting a one-day User Training Workshop on Monday December 11th, 2017 on the UC San Diego main campus, with a site visit and evening interactive poster/EOT session planned. This year’s workshop is being held a day prior to the MECHS (Multihazard Engineering Collaboratory on Hybrid Simulation) 2-day workshop being organized by Professor Shirley Dyke (December 12-13th, 2017) also on the UC San Diego main campus. In addition to the site tour and evening poster session, the one day workshop on December 11th will offer formal presentations including: an overview of the facility, discussion of tools available through DesignSafe, two case studies of large-scale testing projects previously conducted at NHERI@UC San Diego, an overview of research planning, an overview of advances in hybrid simulation capabilities available at the site, a summary of payload opportunities, and finally conclude with highlighting education/outreach/training (EOT) activities and opportunities for users. With the overarching objective to increase the user base of the facility, workshop attendees will be provided with the knowledge necessary to prepare research proposals utilizing the NHERI Experimental Facility at UC San Diego, including recommendations on how to plan and execute successful large-scale shake table projects.
