Servo Electromechanical Shaking Table System

Code: BMT-ST/E

BMT-ST Shaking Table is designed to perform earthquake simulation in a workshop or lab to test earthquake effects on different products. In has a rigid base frame and a moving table that is connected with an Electro-Mechanical actuator controlled by BESMAK® dynamic controller and simulation software.

BESMAK® Seismic Simulators Across the globe, civil engineering researchers rely on BESMAK simulation technology and expertise to accurately replicate earthquake ground motions in laboratory settings. They deploy BESMAK® seismic simulators to evaluate the behavior of everything from small structural components to fullscale structures under true earthquake conditions. This robust uni-axial and multi-axial systems help governments and research organizations ensure the safety, durability and reliability of buildings, bridges and a wide array of other civil structures.

BESMAK® special-purpose Seismic Simulator systems

BESMAK® Special-purpose Seismic Simulators are designed to evaluate specimens that are either too large for other simulators or specimens that can be evaluated with fewer degrees of freedom. A Special-purpose simulator can be more economical than a full six degree of freedom system.

  • Biaxial bridge testing
  • Uniaxial wall testing
  • Seismic isolator testing

Machine; Shaking table, compatible base table for shaking table with sliding movement system, actuator system to provide system movement, German made electronic control unit, embadded type MTS position sensor inside actuator, earthquake simulation software.

Frame; It consists of 2 tables and slider motion system. The friction between the two tables is minimized by sliding movement system.

Actuator: The actuator structure is double acting and dynamic with minimized friction. The actuator is designed for the dynamic structure to create earthquake simulation. It has the MTS position sensor embedded in the piston for position and displacement control of the actuator and it can simulate earthquake data according to Richter scale.

Control Unit: The electronic control unit of the test system is a German brand. German electronic control unit; It has 6 channels, 1000 data sampling rate per second (works with 1 kHz data acquisition), it is suitable to control the sensor up to 2, external 2, 1 RS232-485 and 1 debug channel.

Software: The system will be provided with earthquake simulation software.Simulation software is displacement controlled. Displacement and time-dependent earthquake records can be loaded by writing simulations.
