    Abstract

    This paper has the twin aim of presenting the new Actidyn Q67-2 shaker installed at the University of Dundee, with consideration of motion replication and repeatability, and also to demonstrate one particular advantage of the "real earthquake" motion capability in validating and enhancing learning from earthquake case histories. Case histories of liquefaction-induced settlements from the Maule earthquake in Chile in 2010 and soil structure interaction from the Kobe earthquake in Japan in 1995 are presented.
