Abstract

With the support from the US Department of Education through the Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program (MSEIP). Four community engineering students have participated in the “Accelerated STEM Pathways through Internships, Research, Engagement, and Support” (ASPIRES) at San Francisco State University in summer 2018. This paper presents the summer intern project findings on collapse simulation of a one-bay-one-story steel frame developed in The Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (OpenSees). Interns conducted the research on the model identification and uncertainty quantification of the modified Ibarra-Medina-Krawinkler (IMK) model. Through the presentation of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) analysis, the modified IMK model parameters are recognized and their uncertainty is quantified. This program provides mentorship for interns with the scientific research in earthquake engineering, and trains interns to integrate theory and practice, which serves preparation of their transition to a four-year university.
