Debugging Design Codes
 
Professor Carol Shield, Ph.D., and her colleagues at the Multi-Axial Subassemblage Testing (MAST) Lab at the University of Minnesota are performing real-world seismic simulations on full-scale civil structures to verify design codes, and explore new materials and systems to optimize civil project safety and cost-effectiveness. To achieve the extremely large loads and strokes required for these multi-axial simulations, they partnered with MTS to develop the world’s highest capacity 6DOF mechanical test system.
