Masri University of Southern California Los Angeles, California, USA Presentation at Joint NCREE/JRC Workshop on International Collaboration on Earthquake Disaster Mitigation Research Methodologies, Facilities, Projects and Networking National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering, Taipei, Taiwan November 2003 INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE ACTIVITIES IN STRUCTURAL CONTROL AND MONITORING
IASC 2 Outline Introduction International Cooperation in CE Research Research Needs in Structural Control IASC Working Groups 4IWSC
IASC 3 International Association for Structural Control (IASC) Established in 1993 Objectives of IASC: - Advancement of the science and practice of structural control and monitoring of civil infrastructure systems, by means of education, research and application of knowledge. - Foster international collaboration and information dissemination through the activities of its Working Groups and through the convening of periodic Workshops and Conferences
IASC 4 Cooperative Research Types Different aspects of the same problem could be studied in two or more countries in a coordinated program; A large experimental project could be undertaken in one country and subsidiary projects by researchers from other countries could piggyback on the main project; Researchers on related projects in two or more countries could meet annually in a workshop to exchange information and make recommendations for future projects.
IASC 5 International Initiative for Intelligent Infrastructure Research (I 4 R) I 4 R Coordinating Committee Country #1 National Committee Country #2 National Committee Country #n National Committee I 4 R Organizational structure.

IASC 8 Research Needs in Structural Control Use control to improve the seismic performance of existing structures, especially steel-frame buildings. Develop more effective combinations of methods of control for design of new buildings. Develop control methods for improving the seismic resistance of bridges. Carry out experimental verification of integrated control and monitoring systems under realistic conditions. Develop standardized benchmark tests for comparison purposes. Carry out tests on full-scale buildings that have been provided with control systems. Develop closer cooperation between research in structural control and research in smart materials and smart structures.
IASC 9 Research Needs in Structural Control (cont) Study protective control of critical facilities such as emergency response centers, emergency communication systems, fire and police response systems, etc., which must continue to function during earthquakes. Expand the studies of structural control to include protection of such items as large computer facilities, hospital facilities including large medical equipment, electrical generation and distribution systems, TV and radio facilities, and other items that are important for emergency earthquake response. Improve the competence of practicing engineers by preparing explanatory documents, giving seminars and short courses, etc.
IASC 10 Short-Range Research Goals (a)Expanded application of passive control devices, (b)development of active control methods for moderate oscillations, (c)cost-effective control of existing structures, (d)health monitoring of civil infrastructure systems, and (e)experimental verification of large scale, if not full-scale, control applications.
IASC 11 Long-Range Research Goals Cost-effective methods of integrated control, control systems for very large earthquakes and very strong winds, post-earthquake damage detection, development of appropriate design codes for structural control, and collaborative international research.
