Another system uses hydraulic pistons that mount to a wood platform.
The researchers will replicate quakes in slow motion by pushing on the building with hydraulic pistons. As the system mimics larger and larger tremors, sensors within the building will monitor the stresses that rip apart joints and crack walls and floors.
These include clamping ledges with pressed-in hydraulic pistons that can be directly mounted to press bed or ram with spacers, sliding hydraulic C clamps that mount in T slots, and double-acting cylinders that install in bed, ram, or bolster, and lock in the die's T slot or swing 90 degrees to lock.
The problem is likely to restrict movement of the hydraulic pistons, negatively affecting DSC performance.
