We will visit the Department of Geotechnical Engineering, where a number of advanced geotechnical research facilities are housed, such as geotechnical centrifuge, High Temperature & Pressure EH Rock Triaxial Testing Apparatus, Triaxial Testing Apparatus for Unsaturated Soils, and physical model laboratory.

The "Multi-functional Shaking Tables Lab" of Tongji University was built in 2011. It consists of 2 areas: 1) the multiple shaking tables testing area and 2) the strong floor and reaction wall testing area. The multiple shaking tables testing system is composed of A (side table 30 ton), B (main table 70 ton), C (main table 70 ton), D (side table 30 ton) four shaking tables, two trenches (70m and 30m in length respectively) and one reaction wall. Multiple shaking tables can work in same way or with relative motion.
