Real-Time Hybrid Testing Using a Fixed Iteration Implicit HHT Time Integration Method for a Reinforced Concrete Frame

A real-time hybrid test of a 3 story-3 bay reinforced concrete frame which is divided into numerical and physical substructure models under uniaxial earthquake excitation was run using a fixed

Human-centered e-science: A group-theoretic perspective on cyberinfrastructure design

A critical review of over 150 CI research papers published in the last decade is presented through the lens of McGrath's seminal Time, Interaction and Performance theory of groups to illustrate the relevancy of a group-theoretic perspective to CI.

How important is scientific software in bioinformatics research? A comparative study between international and Chinese research communities

This analysis shows that scientists in the field of bioinformatics rely heavily on scientific software: the major differences between the international community and the Chinese example being how scientific packages are mentioned in publications and the time gap between the introduction of a package and its use.

Social scientists' satisfaction with data reuse

Several data quality attributes—completeness, accessibility, ease of operation, and credibility—had significant positive associations with data reusers' satisfaction and there was also a significant positive relationship between documentation quality and data re users' satisfaction.

Reordering Ranganathan: Shifting User Behaviours, Shifting Priorities

This paper attempts to interpret the five laws in the present day context of information abundance, digital revolution, currently available resources and services, and user behaviours to suggest how libraries and librarians can better connect to those behaviours.

Advancing Earthquake Engineering Research through Cyberinfrastructure

The evidence that this infrastructure is facilitating earthquake engineering research is examined and the number of users, pageviews, recorded NEES projects, and other stored resources demonstrates that the CI is used significantly and increasingly so.

Institutional and individual influences on scientists' data sharing behaviors: A multilevel analysis

The national survey shows that regulative pressure by journals; normative pressure at a discipline level; and perceived career benefit and scholarly altruism at an individual level have significant positive relationships with data sharing behaviors; and that perceived effort has a significant negative relationship.

Incentives and integration in scientific software production

The software ecosystem surrounding BLAST, a key bioinformatics tool, is examined, finding that academic credit is a powerful motivator for the production and revealing of improvements, but also that improvements motivated by academic credit are less likely to be integrated than those with other motivations, including financial gain.

A computational finite‐element program for hybrid simulation

The essence of real time hybrid simulation (RTHS) is the reliance on a physical test (virtual finite element) in support of a numerical simulation, which is unable to properly simulate it

Socio-Technical Design

Walking the tightrope


In October 2002, through the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) program, the National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded the University of California, San Diego

Contextual design - defining customer-centered systems

This book introduces a customer-centered approach to business by showing how data gathered from people while they work can drive the definition of a product or process while supporting the needs of

Development of an Instrument to Measure the Perceptions of Adopting an Information Technology Innovation

The development of an instrument designed to measure the various perceptions that an individual may have of adopting an information technology IT innovation, comprising eight scales which provides a useful tool for the study of the initial adoption and diffusion of innovations.

Scientific Collaboration on the Internet

Modern science is increasingly collaborative, as signaled by rising numbers of coauthored papers, papers with international coauthors, and multi-investigator grants. Historically, scientific

If We Build It, Will They Come? The Cultural Challenges of Cyberinfrastructure Development

In this chapter, we show how Hofstede’s cultural constructs help explain the dysfunction we observed in the early history of the George E. Brown, Jr., Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation

Implementation and Accuracy of Continuous Hybrid Simulation with Geographically Distributed Substructures

A control system is presented that supports the implementation of computationally demanding hybrid simulation algorithms including: continuous algorithms, real-time algorithms, and hybrid testing with geographically distributed substructures and a method is developed to estimate the reliability of the simulation results based on energy errors that accumulate in the experimental substructure.
