To study the response of structure, soil or rock slopes and to verify their seismic performance shake table is an experimental technique which can be used. For physical modelling in earthquake engineering and it is a key to the fundamental understanding and practical application of structure. The test specimens are fastened on the platform and are agitated to the point of failure. Further the data from transducers are interpreted using video record and thus the dynamic behaviour of specimen is studied. This paper describes various types of shake table, their uses in different types of structure and researches done. These days shake tables are valuable tool for the seismic behaviour assessment of civil engineering structures. The main purpose of this study is to present some aspects of the recent knowledge gained on different types of structures worldwide.
