Shaking table earthquake

The PEER Earthquake Shaking Table, dedicated in 1972, was the first of its kind and at 20′ x 20′ is still the largest multidirectional shaking table in the US. The shaking table is configured to produce three translational components of motion; vertical and two horizontal, plus three rotational components; pitch, roll

    The document below describes how to build an inexpensive shake table to simulate ground motion during an earthquake. The table is ideal for having students design Popsicle stick buildings to minimize damage during an earthquake. The table is also an excellent mechanism to study the resonance frequencies of buildings using the BOSS

    Apr 11, 2014 Apr 11, 2014 Operators can preprogram desired shaking patterns, which, in the case of simulated seismicity, are often taken from records of actual ground accelerations in past earthquakes. Numerous shake table facilities exist worldwide today, although most are relatively small, measuring only a few meters or less on a side

    2. THE EARLIEST SHAKING TABLES, 1890-1950 The first shaking table was devised in c.1890 in Japan (Muir Wood 1988). It was driven along rails manually by turning a wheel connected to an eccentric crank to produce a toand-fro motion. No - records are availableconcerning its use. After the 1906 Californian earthquake the State Investigation
