Structural dynamics testing offers capabilities for quasi-static and dynamic testing of small- and large-scale structural components and systems (e.g., large-scale concrete columns and frames) under various loading conditions as well as shake table testing of structural systems of small and moderate scale.

Our lab also offers unique capabilities for real-time hybrid simulations, where a portion of the structure is physically tested in the lab (physical substructure), while the remaining structure (computational substructure) is computationally coupled with the physical specimen. Hybrid simulation can be used as a cost-effective alternative to shake table tests.
