Abstract

In the last two decades, the increasing complexity of engineering systems boosted the development of very efficient simulation methods based on partitioning. In view of coupling dynamic parts of hybrid systems, the finite element tearing and interconnecting approach emerged as the most promising technique. Nonetheless, there is still a lack of a comprehensive study of algorithmic performances from the experimental perspective. In this view, the present paper sheds light on the application of two well-known parallel partitioning methods for the purpose of the simulation of hybrid models. Thus, an existent reinforced concrete bridge is chosen as a benchmark case study. In order to perform hybrid simulations, a novel coupling software was devised. It allowed for combining two physical piers to the numerical model of the remaining part of the bridge. As a result, successful tests were conducted at the ELSA laboratory of the Joint Research Centre of Ispra (Italy).
