    Mar 20, 2017 Japanese architecture and building codes have evolved over time to defend against the ever-present threat of earthquakes. Still, no amount of calculations, small-scale physical models or virtual computer modeling can substitute for real world testing. Hence the E-Defense (short for Earth Defense) complex, which houses Japan’s full-scale earthquake simulator

    Earlier this year in San Diego, two giant cranes lifted the 330,000 lb. steel floor, or platen, off the world’s largest outdoor shake table, revealing a complex network of pipes, wires and catwalks. This was the first step in a major $16.3 million upgrade to the seismic simulator funded by the National Science Foundation. Over the next 10 months, the facility will undergo major construction

    Dec 06, 2018 Introduction Earthquake engineering is the study of how a structure performs when subjected to the forces of an earthquake. Because earthquake forces are more complex than other structural forces, physical and digital simulation methods are used to validate the seismic performance of a structure. The physical method of testing is done with the use of a shake table, and the virtual
