Shaking table Azalée

The largest shaking table in Europe

With 6x6 m dimensions, this table, put in service in 1990, is utilized to test large-dimension specimen with an important mass (up to 100 tons). Eight hydraulic actuators, each can provide a maximum dynamic strength of 100 tons, authorize tri-dimension excitements to be performes.
