    The Center has three biaxial shake tables in operation. Manufactured by MTS, each table measures 14 x 14.6 ft (4.3 x 4.5 m), has a stroke of 12 in ( 300 mm), and can reach a peak velocity of 40 in/sec (1000 mm/sec) and an acceleration of 1g with a 50 ton payload (445 kN). All three tables can be

    What Makes Shake Tables so Popular? - Quanser

    Sep 25, 2018 Sep 25, 2018 For some twenty years, Quanser Shake Tables are helping civil engineering students grasp complex concepts of structural dynamics and earthquake engineering more quickly and thoroughly. Engaging, hands-on experiments allow them to leap past dry theory and ‘experience’ an earthquake in safety of the lab. Inspired by Dr. Shirley Dyke, the driving force behind
