This book is intended as a basic introduction to the topic of structural dynamics for undergraduate civil and structural engineering students. Covering single and multiple degree of freedom systems while providing an introduction to earthquake engineering, this book keeps the coverage succinct and on topic at a level ...more on boikeno.com
Students learn about what causes Earthquakes as well as some current methods structural engineers are using to design earthquake resistant buildings. After learning about earthquakes students design, build, and test an earthquake proof structure using only the materials provided. In order to successfully complete this STEM challenge the structure must remain standing after going through an earthquake simulation.
Get your students excited about Engineering! In this project students research, design, and build structures that must withstand an earthquake. Students "purchase" materials for their structures using checks, keep track of spending, and stay under budget.
