International Full-Scale Test Facility for Structural Control
Planning is underway to establish an international full-scale test facility for structural control on the campus of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The purpose of the test facility is to facilitate the development and application of structural response control and health monitoring technologies to improve the safety, serviceability and economy of structures required to resist wind loads, as well as the development of wind engineering information under various wind conditions. The test facility will be centered around a 30-meter high (ten-story) structure with state-of-the-art equipment for the experimental study of structural response control and real-time health monitoring, and it will be available for use by the international structural control community. Current plans are described for the full-scale test structure and associated test facilities, and for a proposed research program, international cooperation and industrial participation.
