KOCED(Korea Construction Engineering Development) is formed to provide a shared infrastructure for construction and civil engineering facilities across Korea. Users can perform remote experiments on these distributed facilities using the KOCEDgrid, which is an Internet-based grid computing system. The authors present technologies to support enhanced hybrid simulation on the KOCEDgrid. A new real-time controller and viewer provide a user-friendly interface to an enhanced environment for hybrid simulation, which has been built on a new version of the grid middleware and on a new hybrid modeling tool. Users can now conduct experiments more flexibly and combine more than one piece of experimental equipment.
