Facilities


CIPPS is headquartered in a 16,000 sq. ft. facility on the East Gainesville Campus. The multidisciplinary center serves as the focal point for homeland security-related research at the University of Florida.

Numerical Facilities:

Software Development:

Dynamic Structural Analysis Suite (DSAS) was developed and is maintained by CIPPS. DSAS is capable of rapidly and accurately performing nonlinear dynamic analysis on a wide range of structural components such as reinforced concrete beams and slabs, steel beams, masonry walls, buried boxes, and wood panels using advanced SDOF- and MDOF- based approaches and has been distributed to several Department of Defense organizations. Currently, DSAS version 4.1 is under development.

Testing Facilities:

Structural dynamics testing is performed at the Powell Family Structures & Materials Laboratory at the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering. The lab, a large metal building around a concrete slab, covers nearly 9000 square feet and is tall enough to accommodate a 36-foot-tall crane hook. Structural testing under short duration dynamic loads can be performed on several devices at the laboratory. Advanced impact testing devices have been built with support from the National Science Foundation at the University:

These testing devices are supported by:
