EARTHQUAKE PROTECTIVE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF SHAKE TABLE
Explore earthquake hazards and damage to buildings by constructing model buildings and subjecting the buildings to ground vibration (shaking similar to earthquake vibrations) on a small shake table. CIVIL constructions and engineering structures are designed to withstand a variety of operational loads and environmental conditions over decades of safe and economic usage. Earthquakes are part of this environment. Apart from destruction of life and property, they can have serious indirect consequences.
