The shaking table system for geotechnical centrifuge, which can simulate sinusoidal and real seismic waves under a centrifugal force of 50 times earth gravity, is capable of providing significant data for the seismic design of structures. The shaking table can accommodate test specimens up to 250kg under 50G condition, so it can be used to perform various types of ground shaking tests.
