Shake table for earthquake simulation for unversity students

Shake tables are typically used for experimental research in earthquake engineering, but they are also very useful for instructional demonstrations. The University Consortium on Instructional Shake Tables (UCIST) has partnered with the George E. Brown Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), a premier cyber-environment project
