Thanks to one of the readers, here are some additional pictures of the hybrid simulation setup at University of Swinburne, that was discussed in this post. New research on creaking of drywalls in high-rise buildings being done at the hybrid simulation setup. Stay tuned for more info in the upcoming weeks! ( Read about the creaking problem here ) Continue reading SE lit Café (2) bonus pictures!
A look at the article: Dávalos, H., & Miranda, E. (2019). Evaluation of bias on the probability of collapse from amplitude scaling using spectral‐shape‐matched records. Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics, 48(8), 970-986. Kind of an intro. Anyone doing a time history assessment deals with ground motion records. To many SE people, these records are nothing but a mere loading protocol, with a pinch of trust in people preparing them. However, (hopefully, if we are well-informed) we cannot just go and take an earthquake record from somewhere in California and apply it to Peru. We need to “select” appropriate records (from sites with … Continue reading SE Literature Café: Wait, I cannot just multiply my earthquake records by 10?
