Upcoming Facilities

The Structural Engineering Laboratory is striving ahead to meet its commitments for quality Research and Development, thus the latest upcoming facility is the Pseudo-Dynamic (PsD) test method to perform a fully dynamic test of a structure without the use of a shake table. This facility would be available in the new extended laboratory.

 

   Pseudo-Dynamic Testing Facility

 
Pseudo-Dynamic (PsD) test method provides an affordable means to perform a fully dynamic test of a structure without the use of a shake table. The equations of motion of the test structure is integrated in the real time and computed deflections are applied to the structure at select points while system parameters of the test structure are updated in based on real time measurement of force-deformation characteristics. Explicit integration algorithms are used with appropriate provisions to ensure the overall stability of the test environment.

            The ceiling height of the lab space is kept at 15 m to accommodate upto 10 m tall specimens and a 250 kN EOT crane. The integrated strong floor and wall provide a three-axis reaction frame system for application of vertical and lateral loads. The foundation slab of the three-cell box girder will provide a basement area for locating accumulators, manifolds for servo-hydraulic actuators.
