Development of 2‐axis harmonic shaking table
Keywords:harmonic shaking table, experimental dynamical analysis of structures
Development of device for harmonic excitation of engineering structures is presented. Device is developed in order to introduce experimental dynamic analysis of structures to students and engineers. Basic drive mechanisms of device are electric motors whose rotational motion is transferred into translational. This enables possibility for excitement of structural models with harmonic force, which is the one of the most used in experimental analysis. In accordance with modest financial funds, aim is posed in such a way that device must be feasible and also applicable for a range of experiments. This aim is successfully achieved.
