Shake Table



Horizontal Shaking Table

A view of the centrifuge axis, with the drive motor in the foreground. The long-cylinder on the side of the arm is one of two nitrogen gas bottles that pressurize the hydraulic system for the shaker. The gray enclosures at the top of the photo contain the on-board computers and select other components. These items are kept close to the centrifuge axis to minimize the g-field they are subjected to.
