Abstract


Hybrid simulation combines the physical testing and computer modeling to analyze the dynamic responses of structures to external impacts (Hakuno et al., 1969). This relatively novel technique has been widely used in earthquake engineering. In the present study, it is extended to analyze the responses of structures to coastal loadings. This paper concerns mainly on the hydrodynamic loading induced by storm surge and tsunami events.
