Thumper Truck

The system consists of a shaker, that can apply dynamic loads up to 26.7 kN and in the frequency range of 0-225 Hz to the ground both vertically and laterally, integrated to a truck. The truck is ideal to use in studies and tests on soil response analysis, soil-structure interaction and in structural response analyses that require dynamic excitation.  As a result of being mobile, it can be used in projects conducted by universities, public institutions and private sector throughout Turkey.

Case studies where Thumper Truck was used:

  • Isolation of The Ambient Ground Vibration Through Pile Planks and Waste Rubber Wave Barriers: Field Tests and Numerical Modelling, Tübitak Project 119M613, Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University
  • Assessment of the Earthquake Risk of Yenikapı and Maltepe Meeting Areas, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality
