When civil structures are subjected to earthquake excitations, components of the infrastructure may become damaged. Knowledge of structural dynamics is required to understand and assess the state of a structure after it has experienced dynamic loading. The goal of this project is to develop a cost-efficient, bi-directional shaking table to be used as a practical tool by students and researchers to study the dynamic behavior of structures when they are subjected to earthquake excitations.
