The Pseudo-Dynamic Test Method (PDTM) is being developped currently as an alternative to the shaking table testing of large size models. However, the stepped slow execution of the former type of test has been found to be the source of important errors arising from the stress relaxation. A new continuous test method, wich allows the selection of a suitable time-scale factor in the response in order to control these errors, es proposed here. Such scaled-time response is theoretically obtained by simply augmenting the mass of the structure for wich some practical solutions are proposed.
