Design of a Shake Table with Moderate Cost

Abstract : Shake table testing is a very efficient tool in earthquake engineering that may be used to enhance construction methods and the overall safety of structures. Shake tables permit investigation of the dynamic behaviour of civil engineering structures. This paper details the development of a uniaxial shake table that was designed and built with the objective of limiting its cost to a moderate amount, bellow 250 k€. The technical specifications of the shake table are presented as well as the evaluation of its performance and its validation. It is shown that it is possible to build an operational shake table capable of generating real seismic motion for the assessment of structural behaviour at a moderate cost.
