Shaking table Mimosa

Set up in 1982, Mimosa is a mono-axial vibrating table of 2x2 m. Its payload is 10 tons. It is activated by a high-frequency actuator allowing to perform tests up to 300 Hz. The actuator course is limited to +/- 2 in. (+/- 12.5 mm). This table has been specially studied for tests on reduced scale models.
