SHAKE TABLE TEST TO EXAMINE THE SEISMIC PERFORMANCE OF UNIT HOUSES

Recently in Japan, unit houses are considered to be used for various purpose
like normal buildings. The purpose of this study is to examine the seismic performance of unit
houses. 3 universities and 4 companies constituted a team for this test. We set two specimens on
the shake table in Large-scale Earthquake Simulator in Japan National Research Institute for
Earth Science and Disaster Resilience. We input seismic waves, 2 times larger than Japan
Building Standard level 2 earthquake. That earthquake is defined as the largest estimated
earthquake in the area. We measured acceleration, story drift, and strain of columns. Moreover,
damages were observed after shaking. From the damage result, we confirmed that unit houses
satisfy Japan Building Standards.
