This paper describes how real-time multiprocessor systems, such as those required for active structural control, can be developed to satisfy timing requirements on hardware and software. The approach includes an analysis of the required timing properties, a modeling technique based on real-time logic and Modecharts, and a verification procedure using simulation and model checking. Our goal is to enable the development of reliable real-time computer software for practical civil engineering applications.
