Advanced Dynamic Testing Techniques

Quasi-static loading test method (QST):

  • A test specimen is subjected to slowly changing prescribed forces or deformations by means of hydraulic actuators
  • Inertial forces within the structures are not considered in this method.
  • The purpose is to observe the material behavior of structural elements, components, or junctions when they are subjected to cycles of loading and unloading.
  • The dynamic nature of earthquakes is not captured

Shaking table testing method (STT):

  • Test structures may be subjected to actual earthquake acceleration records to investigate dynamic effects
  • Inertial effects and structure assembly issues are well represented
  • The size of the structures is limited or scaled by the size and capacity of the shake table

Other testing methods (STT):

Effective Force Testing Method (EFT):

  • Effective Force Technique
  • Hybrid Testing & Computing
  • Real-Time Pseudo-Dynamic Hybrid Testing System
  • Real-Time
