We all know how do earthquakes occur and what destruction they cause. But as for now, we cannot predict exactly when an earthquake will happen. So the earthquake-resistant design is becoming the new form in most earthquake-prone cities.
This earthquake working model, made of BOSON Smart Science Pack-Earthquake Challenge, is well applicable to study how to improve the buildings earthquake-proof level.
This earthquake working mode combines a shake table and earth-proof structures from simple materials and BOSON modules.
The model simulates seismic ground motion during an earthquake. With a rotation sensor, you can change the speed of the motor to generate movement at different frequencies. It will be inspiring to test the effect of short and high-frequency earthquakes on buildings.
A nature earthquake creates motions on 3 axes, but since our shake table is moving along the same direction, it will be easy to measure the acceleration on the X-axis with a micro:bit, to give you an accurate result of how strong the earthquake is. Fix the micro:bit at the top of the building, plug it with your computer, open Mind+, and let the data fly.
Then, we can try different shapes/heights/weights to figure out the best solution to earthquake-proof structures.
Note: Not include materials like micro:bit, Box & Cardboard, Straws, Pipe cleaners, Bottle caps, Bubber bans, Thumbtack, etc.
