The design concept of the UPRM Earthquake Simulator was the design of a small unidirectional electrohydraulic shaking table facility. The initial design concept consisted of a rigid platform sliding over a near frictionless linear bearing system and driven by an actuator attached to a reaction mass.Chat Online

Test box and shaking table the shaking table is made of two boards fixed together with three vertical steel plates. the excitation is induced horizontal movement and the vertical plates make a uniform sinusoidal dynamic acceleration on the model. the soil box is 184cm long, 50cm wide and 75cm deep made of a 2cm thick transparent plexiglas ...
Seismic code design, a single storey fullscale unreinforced con ned brick masonry building has been constructed on the shaking table facility at the earthquake engineering research center eerc of sharif university of technology. the 4 by 4 meter model consists of four brick masonry walls con ned
Midstory isolation structure is developing from base isolation structures. as a complex structural system, the work mechanism of base isolation structure is not entirely appropriate for midstory isolation structure, and the prolonging of structural natural period may not be able to decrease the seismic response of substructure and superstructure simultaneously.
This paper presents numerical simulations of the behavior of a sandy layer subjected to a cyclic horizontal acceleration in shaking table tests, with a particular attention focused on the settlements of a dry sand layer, and on the liquefaction of saturated sand. a compactionliquefaction model cl is applied to these simulations.

Our large portfolio of equipment for field and laboratory testing includes a 6 axis shaking table and a hollow cylinder apparatus for dynamic soil testing, and will soon include a new 16312m national soilfoundationstructure interaction sofsi facility. we also have access to all the other computational and testing facilities within the faculty.
The model tests can be divided into two categories, namely, those performed under gravitational field of earth generally called shaking table tests or 1g tests and those performed under higher gravitational field centrifuge tests or multig tests. both shaking table and centrifuge model tests have certain advantages and limitations.
Design of shaking table tests on atriumstyle subway station models under seismic excitations with z.m. zhang, y. yuan, e. bilotta, h.t. yu, h.l. zhao in view of the good performance in natural lighting, more and more atriumstyle subway stations are used in urban subway systems.

A shaking table test on a twostorey full scale unreinforced masonry urm building was performed at the eucentre laboratory within a comprehensive research programme on the seismic vulnerability of the existing dutch urm structures. the building specimen was meant to represent the endunit of a terraced house, built with cavity walls and without any particular seismic design or detailing ...
The shaking table system for geotechnical centrifuge, which can simulate sinusoidal and real seismic waves under a centrifugal force of 50 times earth gravity, is capable of providing significant data for the seismic design of structures. the shaking table can accommodate test specimens up to 250kg under 50g condition, so it can be used to
The shaking table tests was performed with 50 and 100 scaled northridge earthquake acceleration records. a 3d fe model of the steel frame system was carried out in the abaqus program as close as possible to the actual model. the displacement results at the top of the model were obtained by shaking table tests and the fe model analysis.
A flexible wall barrel, shaking table test method is suitable for investigating pile behavior during an earthquake. cost, time and difficulties in identifying soil properties accurately in physical models, in addition to the effects of test conditions, have led to the current research where the physical test is replaced by numerical simulation.

In north america, several shaking table tests have been conducted on modular block walls at the royal military college rmc canada. the shaking table tests conducted at rms were models of a modular block wall. it has to be noted that because of the size of the table shake facilities, reduced modular blocks and reinforcement were used.
A shaking table test for a reinforced concrete rc 6story wallframe building figure 3, which was conducted at edefense in january 2006, is a good example of the use of the input compensation method.4 the specimen was an apartment building designed using the japanese design code adopted in the 1970s. its size was 17 9 12 9 16 m
