Experimental Research in Earthquake Engineering: EU-SERIES by Fabio Taucer, Roberta Apostolska

By Fabio Taucer, Roberta Apostolska

In this quantity, most sensible seismic specialists and researchers from Europe and around the globe, together with the George E. Brown, Jr. community for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) within the united states, current the newest end result in their paintings in experimental checking out, in addition to the result of the transnational entry actions of exterior researchers who've used Europe's seven biggest and such a lot complicated seismic checking out amenities within the framework of the Seismic Engineering learn Infrastructures for ecu Synergies (SERIES) venture financed by way of the eu fee in its seventh Framework Programme (2007-2013). This comprises EU’s biggest response wall facility, EU's 4 biggest shaking desk laboratories and its significant centrifuges. The paintings awarded contains state of the art examine in the direction of the seismic layout, overview and retrofitting of buildings, in addition to the advance of leading edge learn towards new primary applied sciences and methods selling effective and joint use of the learn infrastructures. The contents of this quantity reveal the culmination of the hassle of the ecu fee in helping examine in earthquake engineering.

Moreover, hydraulic damper is more specific than damper and it is encoded as hydraulic damper rdfs:subClassOf 18 R. Hasan et al. Fig. 5 Synonymous relationship Fig. 6 Transitive relationship of device damper. Note that rdfs: subClassOf is a transitive relation. Using OWL inference engine, we can utilize the power of transitivity and for a given concept we can retrieve all more specific concepts that are directly or indirectly connected by rdfs:subclassof. 6. 9 Related Work NEES ontology has been developed in the domain of earthquake engineering.

Additional information of the updating process can be found in (Lamata Martinez et al. 2013). Since all nodes in the SVDB provide their information in a common format (specified by the WSDL), the central site can query nodes in the exact same way, simplifying the operations that it has to do to collect and treat information. This process is easily scalable to any potential new node in the network, and the effort to 3 The SERIES Virtual Database: Architecture and Implementation 25 Fig. 1 SERIES virtual database global architecture include a new node in the SVDB is minimum.

Be suitable for any experimental data type: data produced by centrifuges, reaction walls, shaking tables, etc. ) which are useful to describe, repeat or simulate the experiments under the same conditions (Lamata Martínez et al. 2010). • Allow for data accessibility restrictions: projects can be public, restricted only to partners or, completely private (accessible only to the laboratory where have been produced). A critical analysis of data formats pre-dating that of SERIES was performed at the beginning of the project.
