Seismic Analysis and Simulation Testing
UCI lab facilities evaluate components for their ability to withstand seismic events, such as an earthquake or vibration from other equipment. The parameters we test are tailored to customer specifications, including location and surrounding equipment, and customized seismic curves can be implemented to refine the testing process to exact customer specifications. With fragility testing, we are able to determine the capacity of equipment to endure seismic events.
As with other types of testing, our seismic testing procedures are optimized for each type of equipment. We test smaller components on our seismic table, and for larger equipment, we apply simulations to designs. This allows finite element analysis and other types of seismic evaluations.
We have an experienced and dedicated team of engineers who focus specifically on seismic and equipment qualification. For large-scale seismic tests, we collaborate with our audited partnering labs that apply the same rigid quality standards as our own facilities.
