Research work for earthquake safety

Equipping one of the most modern earthquake simulators in Europe, Bosch Rexroth developed two vibrator tables. These have been installed in the new building that the Laboratory of Earthquake Engineering and Dynamic Analysis (L.E.D.A.) erected this year at the university in Enna, Italy. Rexroth has also provided an innovative set of servohydraulic actuators for pseudodynamic testing in a full-scale reaction structure. The scientists there construct scale models used when simulating the effects of a variety of earthquakes. The researchers’ goal is to determine how civilian buildings can be better protected against earthquake damage. The hydraulic components and the Motion-Logic system in the table are also Rexroth products.
