Professor Oh-Sung Kwon is advancing hybrid simulation techniques that combine numerical models and experimental specimens using computer technology to determine how buildings will respond to seismic activity. The programming of the computational/control platform used to conduct experiments, which allows engineers to manipulate code, was developed in-house. Experimenting with a myriad of algorithms rather than being limited to predetermined programs, the research group has developed an integrated simulation framework that can seamlessly integrate numerical models in several analysis platforms and experimental specimens in geographically distributed laboratories.
Multiple tests conducted across several laboratories worldwide is helping to develop technology that more accurately and efficiently predicts structural behaviour during extreme seismic events. Through this integrated simulation framework, a regional scale simulation will be possible which will help evaluate the resilience of urban infrastructure.
