Abstract: The classic step-by-step Pseudo-dynamic (PsD) method is relatively easy to implement, including the case of substructuring, but obliges to a very low execution speed of the test. A big improvement is introduced by the continuous PsD method that allows for a faster execution and improves the quality of the results by making a more effective use of the measurements. However, when running the continuous method with substructuring, sophisticate algorithms are necessary to combine the computations and measurements of the numerical and experimental substructures. In the most advanced testing facilities, such as the future European Facility for Advanced Seismic Testing (EFAST), shaking table experiments are foreseen as well as PsD tests and real-time hybrid tests so that the most advantageous one ¿or combination of several ones- is applied to every problem.
