Register Now for nees@berkeley Hybrid Simulation Workshop on June 28 & 29

The nees@berkeley Equipment Site is pleased to announce that its annual Hybrid Simulation Workshop will be held on June 28 – 29, 2012.  The workshop will be held at the nees@berkeley laboratory located at UC Berkeley's Richmond Field Station (RFS). 

This year's Hybrid Simulation Workshop emphasizes real-time loading, including demonstrations of our new “smart” dynamic platform. Attendees will: 

  1. Learn the basics of hybrid simulation methods.
  2. Learn about OpenSees and OpenFresco.
  3. Conduct several real-time hybrid simulation demonstrations at the nees@berkeley Equipment Site.
  4. Be able to use hybrid simulation in their NEES and non-NEES projects.
  5. Prepare to develop new hybrid simulation tests and algorithms.
  6. Learn about pros and cons (accuracy, limits, ease of use, field applications in damage assessment) of modern non-conventional monitoring and measuring techniques.

The registration deadline is June 15.  This workshop is offered at no cost to participants.

Limited travel support is available for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, or tenure-track faculty at US schools.
