Innovative Shake Table System Configurations
 
Seismic simulation requirements are changing due to a variety of factors: these include the need to incorporate ever larger scale test articles to increase simulation fidelity, as well as demands for replicating the longer displacements and durations of recent earthquakes (Kobe 1995 and Tohoku 2011, respectively). MTS provides the expertise, advanced control techniques and extensive product portfolio that civil engineers and researchers need to meet these challenges. The following case studies represent a cross-section of how MTS is helping address these issues with innovative solutions, from multi-table configurations to additional actuators to table-on-table designs.
