For reproducing realistic earthquake events in a laboratory with a moderate research budget using a compact system. Earthquakes are a problem of great significance to Australia. History shows that earthquakes may occur in places with no previous seismic activity. Australian cities are at risk as they comprise old infrastructure made of unreinforced brick and masonry, which is particularly

• ### 'Shake table' designed for full-scale earthquake

The first step in designing a full-scale shake table is to understand the ground motions that it must replicate. Professor Toksoz and his coworkers analyzed data on peak ground accelerations (PGAs) measured during 15 significant earthquakes worldwide. (Strong-ground-motion instruments generally measure accelerations; velocities and displacements must be calculated from the accelerations.)
