Servo-Hydraulic Shake Table

  • The medium sized shake table with the platform measuring 1.2x1.8 m is powered by 50 kN-150 mm MTS servo-hydraulic actuator which can generate velocities in the range of 1.5 m/s for simulation of Kobe class earthquake.


Research Areas

It can be used for

  • Simulating the real earthquake motions.

  • Seismic verification of small prototypes and models of large scale structural systems.

  • Shake Table testing is essential for load-deformation behaviour of certain systems which are not amenable to Pseudo-Dynamic type testing.
