Noon - 2:00 PM Pacific Time / 3:00 – 5:00 PM Eastern Time

The NEES@Illinois Multi-Axial Full Scale Sub-Structured Testing & Simulation (MUST-SIM) facility is offering a webinar to educate potential researchers on the capabilities of the MUST-SIM facility. Located on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus, the MUST-SIM Laboratory is a large-scale laboratory experimentation facility that is part of the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Science Foundation. In addition to presentations on the equipment and capabilities of the facility, there will be Q & A sessions to investigate how the MUST-SIM facility capabilities can be customized to address participants’ specific research objectives, including research in areas outside of the earthquake engineering field. A portion of the webinar will be dedicated to recent and continuing advancements of NEES@Illinois in the areas of response defined control, dense instrumentation, and 3-D Hybrid Simulation using UI-SimCor.
