Hitachi Testing Equipment Safety, Ease Relief to Support the Living

Image: Research and development support system

Our dynamic mechanical testing system support research and development of earthquake behavior to building structures, elevated bridges, nuclear power equipment, etc.,and this system is also used for the evaluation of Bullet train's (Shinkansen) robustness, which has been aimed to be the best in the world.
This system contributes to safety and secure society to reduce earthquake damage and to improve safety of bullet trains aiso.

Overview

These following systems supports research and development in various fields, such as reducing earthquake damage loss, keep secure-high-speed railways systems, prevention of accidents on freeways, etc.

Rolling Stock Test Plant - Bogie Running Test Apparatus

This test plant supports R&D for trains to secure traveling safety and stability of Shinkansen car.

Dynamic Geotechnical Centrifuge Test Apparatus

This is a vibration table for carrying out vibration tests for civil engineering, by rotating the arm to apply N times the gravity force to a 1/N scale model by centrifugal force. It is used for scale model testing of the ground.

Vibration Table

Truly reproducing the 3D-6D of movement of earthquake it supports to study a seismic performance examination of structure and ground for earthquake-proof validation.

Structure Loading Test Equipment

Heavy loading test equipment to be used for a performance test of seismic isolation rubber
