Abstract:Shake tables are often used to simulate earthquakes to test the performance of structures under seismic loads. This project focuses on implementing the Quanser Shake Table II, which is a valuable tool for conducting small-scale experimental vibration tests. This research project focused on the development of a control system and user interface for the shake table. With the aim of making the shake table easier to control, a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller and an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) were developed. MATLAB was used to simulate the control system, while the graphical programming environment NI LabVIEW was used to develop the GUI. In this presentation, an overview of a closed-loop control system, the designed GUI, and the implementation results are discussed.
