INTRODUCTION As part of QuakeCoRE research into the reparability of structures, the ROBUST (RObust BUilding SysTem) BUILDING SYSTEM TESTING programme is a collaborative NZ-Chinese project involving the 2-D shaking table testing of a full scale multistorey resilient and reparable building system (i.e. with friction connections and non-structural elements (see Fig. 1). The testing will be conducted at the International Joint Research Laboratory on Earthquake Engineering (ILEE) facilities, Shanghai, China. The test specimen will be representative of a realistic New Zealand building with structural elements, floor diaphragms, as well as non-structural elements (NSE) including ceilings, partitions, cladding and other details. Earthquake energy will be dissipated using a range of frictional systems, many of which have been developed in New Zealand. This poster describes the objectives of the testing, reports on developments that have taken place to date, and presents preliminary plans and drawings of the test specimen.
