Dr. Amy Cerato P.E. leads the seismic test of helical piles on the largest outdoor shake table in the world, located at the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.The shake table was fitted with a soil box to contain helical pile structural components and weights to simulate building loads on the components and collect quantitative data for helical foundation design in seismic zones.
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.
