CUREE Education and Outreach Services : Traveling Shake Table Model

CUREE obtained from the NIED E-Defense agency in Japan their extremely high-quality and realistic scale model of the world’s largest and highest capacity shake table in Miki City, Japan, near Kobe. The motorized model shows in slow motion how the actuators make the platform move in both horizontal axes and vertically, and with pitch, either separately or together

For nominal shipping, handling, and insurance cost, the model can be loaned to CUREE Member Universities.
