By Michael N. Fardis,Zoran T. Rakicevic

Nowadays examine in earthquake engineering is principally experimental and in large-scale; complex computations are built-in with large-scale experiments, to counterpoint them and expand their scope, even by way of coupling diverse yet simultaneous exams. Earthquake engineering can't provide solutions via checking out and qualifying few, small general elements or unmarried huge prototypes. along with, the massive variety of Civil Engineering buildings doesn't permit drawing conclusions from just a couple of assessments; buildings are huge and their seismic reaction and function can't be meaningfully validated in a typical lab or within the box. So, seismic trying out amenities will be a lot higher than in different clinical fields; their employees should be imaginative, devising clever how you can perform concurrently assorted exams and complicated computations. to raised serve the sort of venture ecu trying out amenities and researchers in earthquake engineering have shared their assets and actions within the framework of the European venture SERIES, combining their learn and together constructing complex trying out and instrumentation strategies that maximize trying out functions and elevate the price of the assessments. This quantity provides the 1st results of the sequence and its contribution in the direction of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, i.e., to crucial improvement in Earthquake Engineering of the earlier 3 a long time. the idea that and the methodologies for performance-based earthquake engineering have now matured. although, they're established often on analytical/numerical study; large-scale seismic testing has entered the stage recently. The sequence Workshop in Ohrid (MK) in Sept. 2010 pooled jointly the most important ecu seismic checking out amenities, Europe’s most sensible specialists in experimental earthquake engineering and choose specialists from the united states, to provide fresh study achievements and to address future developments.

Audience: This quantity can be of curiosity to researchers and advanced practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and  experimental dynamics, together with seismic qualification.
