Abstract

The implementation of the University of Minnesota Multi-Axial Subassemblage Testing (MAST) system, in a new laboratory on the Minneapolis campus was discussed. The MAST system enables multi-axial cyclic static tests of large-scale tests of large-scale structural subassemblage. The six-degree-of-freedom control technology employed by the MAST system advances the technology by allowing the experimental simulation of complex states of deformation and load through its multi-axial capabilities. It is suggested that MAST facility will fit into an integrated data-centric approach for experimentation, computation, theory, databases and model-based simulations facilitated through the Network for Earthquake Engineering (NEES) System Integration.
