Abstract: Within the NEFOREEE project, a one-storey one-bay steel frame model was tested at different shaking tables and pseudodynamic (PsD) facilities within the EU. The same specified unidirectional input was introduced in real time at the shaking tables or pseudodynamically at the other facilities. The specimens used at both kinds of facilities had the same characteristics and size (3m of length and height by 2.7m of width, with a rigid mass of 8250 kg) and were tested for several retrofitting configurations by means of added dissipator devices. However, at one of the facilities, real-time PsD tests were conducted by using only a part of the physical model thanks to the substructuring techniques. This paper presents the current stage of these studies including results of the performed tests in both kinds of facilities. The main results in the developments of the real-time PsD method with substructuring are also reported.
