Seismic Waves Reproduction Apparatus

K50-1207-W0

【Product Description】

Table-top vibration generator to observe how simulated seismic waves affect an on-board mock building and/or other objects.

【Overall Advantages to Users】

  • Generates oscillating motion similar to the horizontal seismic vibration (surface wave) represented as a pseudo-sine wave.
  • Designed to observe how a mock tall building shakes during an earthquake along with the amplitude.

【Keywords】

  • Seismic phenomena, seismic waves, earthquake, surface wave
  • Long-period vibration and short period vibration of earthquakes
  • Liquefaction of ground caused by an earthquake

【To all users】

  • Table-top seismic activity reproduction apparatus designed to use as a downsized version of earthquake simulators at science museums.
  • Designed to learn about phenomena of natural disaster in the classroom by reproducing seismic activity to observe:
    • the process of how a tall building (or a house) collapses, and
    • the mechanism of and the damage from liquefaction (Note: accessories to reproduce liquefaction are not included, they are available by purchasing K50-1208).

【To teachers】

  • Designed to reproduce the process of how a building shakes and collapses through teacher’s demonstration using the model of 7 stories building that comes with the product.
  • Earthquake proof assessment of the self-produced mock building and/or its foundation possible.

【To students】

  • Easy to observe, in person, the process of how a building collapses and how liquefaction occurs.
