Requirements and design specifications
Hydraulic system for the simulation of earthquakes.
Ability to simulate earthquakes of a certain size.
Structural design: having to handle structures even of 1200 kg, a series of simulations and structural verifications were carried out to ensure the resistance of the device to the stresses it is subjected to.
Actuation system: due to this type of oscillations, the hydraulic actuation system is strongly stressed. A series of simulations of the table were performed to ensure the ideal choice of the actuation system.
Cunsultancy during the realisation phase (coordinating the workshops and selecting the commercial components to buy).
Development of the control system to ensure compliance with the earthquake requested profiles.
Development of graphical interface: touch screen device allowing the user to upload the type of earthquake he wants to simulate and launch the test.
Turnkey device including the control system and user control interface.
Device simulating the required seismic events faithfully.
Mechanically suitable device to withstand the loads it is subjected to.
Ease of use: the interface allows you to upload the motion profile, view it, and execute it.
