A visualization of an experiment on a shake table Penn, Michael
A model to enable a graphics presentation of an experiment has been developed. The model was developed specifically for experiments run on a shake table for earthquake simulating tests but could be used for any experiment that involves movement and instrumentation. By integrating the results obtained from the instruments used during an experiment it is possible to display, on a computer screen, the motion of the model being tested. By use of visualization techniques it is possible to obtain a graphical representation of all the instruments being used and thereby producing a picture of the entire experiment.
