Hydroelectric Energy

The Hydroelectric Energy rig demonstrates the basic principle of the conversion of kinetic energy of flowing water into electrical energy, via the rotation of a turbine (Pelton wheel) connected to an electric generator.

Shake Table 2DOF

This rig has been replaced by version 1.1. The shake table rig models the behaviour of a building during an earthquake. The rig uses a simplified structure to model a 2-storey building (2 degrees of freedom), and the earthquake is simulated by linear base motion.
