Centrifuge Foundation Analysis 3-D Rendering

GeoStructures was subcontracted by Environmental Tectonics Corporation to perform subsurface exploration and foundation vibration analysis and design for the Disorientation Research Device GL-6000 at the Wright-Paterson Air Force Base. The device creates bidirectional acceleration forces, resulting in rotational radial thrust and overturning moment, vertical pressure (upward or downward), and torsion, which have to be resisted by its foundation. At the same time, the ground vibration generated by the machine must be limited to a threshold for the other parts of the building area where medical research work is being performed.
