Shaking table
   [Installed : March in 2003]
[Summary] This shaking table has a maximum stroke of ±500 mm and a capacity for shaking at an earthquake wave with a pulse velocity amplitude (more than 1 m/s) at a period of about one second, observed at recent huge earthquakes such as Hyogo Prefecture South Area Earthquake, as well as shaking at an arbitrary wave. A control section has a real-time reaction force compensating control mechanism to generate a shaking force to cancel the reaction of a large-scale sample. The shaking table can reproduce correctly acceleration and frequency characteristics of a seismic wave by applying a feedback of acceleration of the shaking table, displacement, and differential pressure, with responding earthquake destruction testing at the higher acceleration.
[Objective] This testing system is intended to conduct full-scale shaking destruction tests of ground foundation and structures by hybrid testiing linking numerical analysis, shaking table and actuators. This verifies seismic performance assessment and achieves high standard applications.
