Ground response to seismic action is a prime concern in geotechnical earthquake
engineering. The estimation of this response to earthquakes is therefore a very essential phase of the
design or retrofit of a structure. The paper presents the experimental work carried out in the
University of Easy London laboratory to determine the dynamic and seismic response of different
geo-materials (sand, peat, rubber and wood). An educational, one dimensional, shaking table was used
for this purpose. The influence of parameters of these materials, such as density and layer thickness,
and the frequency of the input load applied to them were also investigated.
