Ideal tool for experimentation in teaching and research labs
Senior Lecturer at ACE, Dr. Mihaela Anca Ciupala, has been more than pleased with the opportunities opened up to her students by using the Table. “Teaching the concepts of structural dynamics and earthquake engineering is not easy, as many of these concepts are quite complex. The use of the Shake Table is an excellent opportunity to show theory in action so that the students will have a better understanding of the issues
and problems involved.
“What’s more, the study of the dynamic and seismic response of structures using large-scale models, or prototypes, with large-scale shaking platforms, is very expensive in terms of cost and time and is not easy to accomplish. “Therefore, the Quanser Shake Table is ideal for teaching purposes as it is easy to use, accessible, portable and it has a simple software operation, helping a large number of students to understand and complete projects in a relatively short time.”
