In this paper a formulation and experimental results are presented for a novel application of a 3-degree of freedom (DOF) parallel manipulator to simulate point seismograms and three-dimensional (3-D) earthquake motion. The rigid body acceleration is analyzed to simulate real 3-D earthquakes. Furthermore, first experimental results are reported to analyze earthquake effects on scaled civil structures.
