Real-time hybrid testing of civil structures, in which computational models and physical components must be integrated with high fidelity at run-time, represents a grand challenge in the emerging area of cyber-physical systems. Actuator dynamics, complex interactions among computers and physical components, and computation and communication delays all must(More)
Real-time hybrid testing of civil structures represents agrand challenge in the emerging area of cyber-physical systems. Hybrid testing improves significantly on either purely numerical or purely empirical approaches by integrating physical structural components and computational models. Actuator dynamics, complex interactions among computers and physical(More)
⎯ Hazard mitigation and structural dynamics have been important additions to the undergraduate civil engineering curriculum. UCIST (University Consortium on Instructional Shake Tables) has worked toward improving educational opportunities in this area for nearly 10 years. For the past 8 years, the US National Science Foundation has sponsored a(More)
