Our state-of-the-art equipment includes four shake tables and a range of supporting tools so that we can realistically simulate powerful earthquakes and gain precise data on how structures and systems respond to those forces. Learn more about the equipment we make available to visiting researchers.
We offer three biaxial tables and a fourth table with movement in six directions.

Two mass-rig systems support vertical load while offering flexibility for loading.
The NEES@University of Nevada, Reno equipment site is funded in part by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
