PESHAWAR -- University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Peshawar has planned to organize a mock exercise of earthquake on August 6 to ascertain the resisting power of a new building model to be place on shake table.
New exhibits include a water lab; a flight test zone featuring airplane launchers and a wind tube; an earthquake shake table; sustainable energy dance floor; and much more.
BIG SHAKE: Spectators take a look at a five-story building that was constructed on UC San Diego's big shake table in Scripps Ranch, shortly before the structure was shaken hard during an earthquake simulation.
Outside Kobe, Japan, engineers test structures on a giant moving platform called a shake table. The shake table violently rocks back and forth, simulating the forces of a quake.
[4] tested five potential isolation materials to characterize their frictional features by both semidynamic and shake table experiments.
By inputting seismic waves to the shaker table and stimulating the reaction of the structure on the shake table, the seismic process can be reproduced well and artificial seismic wave experiments can be performed [109-111].
