Professor Oh-Sung Kwon is advancing hybrid simulation techniques that combine numerical models and experimental specimens using computer technology to determine how structures respond to various loads such as earthquake, wind, or fire. The programming of the computational/control platform used to conduct experiments, which allows engineers to manipulate code, was developed in-house. 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 loading scenarios. Through this integrated simulation framework, a regional scale simulation will be possible which will help evaluate the resilience of urban infrastructure.

Undergrad summer student research positions explored The following is part of a series introducing CivMin’s undergraduate summer students to the Department and our greater community. We explore the students’ projects, motivation and challenges, while providing insights into who they are, and what motivates them, beyond academia. It also highlights the multitude of ways summer research […]
CivMin Professor Oh-Sung Kwon is among three professors who recently received grants to study various aspects of this emerging technology Small modular reactors (SMRs) represent a new paradigm that could change how and where nuclear power is used to meet our energy needs — and U of T Engineering research could help point the way […]
A new research collaboration between Korean and Canadian institutions will explore the relationships between sustainable and resilient infrastructure and climate change Four U of T faculty, all from the Department of Civil & Mineral Engineering (CivMin), travelled to Seoul National University (SNU) May 18 – 19, 2023 to participate in a workshop to develop an International […]
