Shake table experiments

The UCIST Shake Table was designed for experimental use and for demonstrations. It can be used in undergraduate and graduate level earthquake engineering and structural dynamics classes. The table is also appropriate for outreach programs at high schools and middle schools. The experiments

    The UCIST Shake Table is a uniaxial bench-scale shake table. This unit can be controlled by a Pentium computer or the Pendant (see figures below). It is effective for a wide variety of experiments for civil engineering structures. The shake Table specifications are as follows: Table 1: Shake Table Specifications (Dyke, “Equipment” page)

Among these, placement of the load-generating mass directly on the top of specimens and the use of external mass-carrying devices based on linear sliding, rotational, and pendulum mechanisms are commonly used. Although more sophisticated testing configurations may be developed, these con
