Dynamic Testing Laboratory

The Dynamic Testing laboratory is part of the DYNLAB & INFO department. The primary testing facility in the laboratory is the two-component programmed seismic shaking table for dynamic testing of structures. The laboratory is also equipped with other two shaking tables, material testing frames, equipment for quasi-static testing, data acquisition, acceleration, velocity and displacement transducers. The laboratory is equipped for field measurements, as well.

Shaking Tables
The Dynamic Testing Laboratory has three seismic shaking tables each one with different capabilities for covering a wide range of structures and material tests.Their capabilities range from acceleration of 1g for loads of up to 400 kN – our biaxial shaking table, acceleration of up to 1 g for loads of up to 80kN – our medium size table and accelerations of up to 3g for loads of up to 5kN – our smallest shaking table.

Material Testing Frames
Our laboratory is equipped with three material testing frames for dynamic and static testing. Our major testing frame can apply a maximum of 3000 kN vertical test force, and a maximum of 1000 kN of horizontal test force. Dynamic testing of specimens with maximum 500x500x1500 mm can also be performed.

Quasi-static equipment
Multi component system for quasi-static testing of elements, connections and assemblages, having a capacity of : +/- 150kN; 120kN & 450kN with a maximum stroke of: +/-20.0cm and +/-30.0cm;

Field Measurements
The Laboratory can perform non-destructive testing of full scaled structures and equipment using ambient vibration and forced vibration methods.We are also equipped for on-site measurement of vibrations of machines and equipment.

Acquisition and measuring equipment
This equipment contains *MTS 469D Controller *PXI 1006 *cDAQ-9188 *cDAQ-9178 *Jäger ADwin-Pro, which is the most sophisticated and modern apparatus in the world.
