Hold-Down Struts

Hold-Down StrutFull Size

The overturning moment resistance in the LHPOST is provided by a combination of gravity loading (test specimen plus platen) and a pair of low-stiffness vertical nitrogen-gas cylinders or hold-down struts. These cylinders work with a nitrogen pressure of 20.7 MPa, have a uniaxial stroke of 0.083 m, and a maximum hold-down force capacity of 3.1 MN.


The Large High-Performance Outdoor Shake Table is supported in part by the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Engineering Simulation (NEES) program of the National Science Foundation under Award Number CMMI-0927178.
