Tip: Use double quotes in a set of words if you want the exact words in the exact order(e.g. "Structural Dynamics Laboratories").Use * for any unknown keywords(e.g. structural* will return structural dynamics laboratory and structural performance-deficient but structural * laboratory will return only structural dynamics laboratory ) Use AND if you want all the words to included in your search results (e.g. PERC AND PEM). Use the OR operator if you want either one of several words(e.g. PERC AND PEM).

About SERIES Data Access Portal


The creation of the distributed database aims to improve the dissemination and use of experimental results and to foster the impact of earthquake engineering research on practice, innovation and earthquake risk mitigation.This requires harmonisation and unification of the European databases in earthquake engineering and the possibility of accessing, through a unique portal, the data stored at different database nodes which are able to dialog with the central portal using a common communication protocol.

"The mission of the Data Access Portal is to foster a sustainable culture of co-operation among all of the research infrastructures and teams that are active in earthquake engineering in Europe"

This requires harmonisation and unification of the European databases in earthquake engineering and the possibility of accessing, through a unique portal, the data stored at different database nodes which are able to dialog with the central portal using a common communication protocol.

Optimum Design of Passive Controlled Steel Frame Structures: The Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (IZIIS) at the University "Rt Cyril and Methodius", Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, represents a leading national centre for investigations in the field of Earthquake Engineering and the latest technologies of construction. IZIIS was established in 1965 upon the UNESCOos recommendation, primarily with the aim of coordinating and performing investigations as well as educating for the M. Sc. and Ph. D degree in the field of Earthquake Structural Engineering at both national and international level. The investigations in this centre are financed from several sources: • Ministry of Education and Science of Republic of Macedonia; • International programmes based on permanent bilateral scientific cooperation signed between R.Macedonia and a certain number of countries; • Industry, national or foreign, by establishment of special research consortia; • Services for industrial needs. This research project has been financed by the UR-Macedonian Joint Board for Scientific and Technological Cooperation signed between the US Government and R. Macedonia. The project was approved four years ago. The cooperative agency on the USA part was NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology), while the UR co-investigator was Prof. Dr. George C. Lee from MCEER. The investigations presented in this report refer to project 123/NIST, i.e., "Optimum Design of Passively Controlled Steel Frame Structures". The concept of passive control of seismic response of structures represents a radical change and a considerable qualitative advance in the approach to design and construction of seismically resistant structures. At the same time, it also offers possibilities for direct application in both construction of new structures and strengthening of existing ones. The investigations performed within the study are in the field of passively controlled structures. A complex analytical-experimental-analytical programme has been realized for the purpose of investigating and evaluating the efficiency of the proposed system for passive dissipation of energy DEFD, involving preliminary analytical investigations of frame structures of different number of storeys with and without DEFD system, quasi-static tests on models of a single storey fragment with DEFD system and dynamic tests on five storey model of a hypothetical frame structure with DEFD system on seismic shaking table by simulation of actual earthquakes, mathematical modeling of the tested models and comparative numerical analysis of three different structural systems (DEFD, DUAL and MRF).

Literature RC Walls: The RC Walls database contains material, geometric and mechanical properties of Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls subjected to monotonic or cyclic loading, along with load-deflection experimental results. The database was assembled from existing experimental data collected from the international literature and builds on previous work carried out at the University of Patras and University of Ljubljana. Part of the RC Walls database – specifically, the tests of Chen 2002, Endo 1975, Hirosawa 1975, Kokusho 1975, Sugano 1973, Tanabe 1975, Tuboi 1975, Zhang 2007 – was assembled by researchers at Tongji University and is also available at NEEShub: http://nees.org/resources/1683 (Citation for those tests: Xilin Lu, Ying Zhou, Juhua Yang, Jiang Qian, Cheng Song & Ying Wang, 2010: "Shear Wall Database," Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (database), Dataset, DOI:10.4231/D38C9R416). The complete dataset in excel format, alongside additional supporting documents, can be downloaded as .zip folder at the “Downloadable items” of the main menu of the present database. A complete list of references is also available there. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme [FP7/2007-2013] under grant agreement n° 227887 [SERIES].

Exchage Data Format

The European scientific community is currently fragmented with each laboratory holding experimental data with a unique local data model and user interface, language and scheme. As a consequence, the dissemination and use of these experimental results outside of the laboratory where they are produced can be problematic. To overcome this, it is proposed to add a layer on top of the existing local databases that is accessible through a unique Data Access Portal. The aim is not to build a central database where local databases either migrate or merge but instead to provide centralised access to database nodes that are distributed over the network which are able to dialog with a central portal in a uniform manner. For achieving the aformentionoed goal a common Exchange Data Format is needed

User Manual

From a conceptual point of view the Data Access Portal has been designed to act as an information space. Taking the above into consideration Data Access Portal supports two complementary modes of information retrieval: a) direct navigation mechanism which allows users to browse through the published projects by interacting with a tree view control which is always visible at the left side of the web application. This panel contains all the available published projects which are structured according to the Exchanged Data Format b) direct search functionality which is a structured keyword-based search where can be found specific information based on exchange data format keywords
