Implementation of dynamic hybrid simulation for response evaluation of shear building

Verma, Mohit ; C, Bharathi Priya


Dynamic hybrid simulation is a testing method, which is developed in the past few decades, to find the dynamic response of a structure. It involves splitting of the structure into two parts: physical substructure that contains the key region of interest, which is tested in a laboratory, and virtual substructure that contains the remaining part of the structure in the form of a numerical model. This paper presents the implementation of DHS for response evaluation of a shear building. The bottom storey alone was tested physically in the laboratory. Electromagnetic shaker was used to emulate the effect of the remaining structure. DHS is found to be an effective tool for dynamic response evaluation of structures.
