The Artificial Earthquakes
For the competition, all the models
will be tested on the shaking-table
for different sized earthquakes. We will start with
a very small earthquake. Then we will gradually increase
the size of the earthquakes to the maximum the shaking-table
We will make a note of the mass of your model and the
size of the earthquake that caused its failure. The
information will be used to calculate an efficiency
ratio for your model.
The three models with the highest efficiency
win prizes for the most-efficient models.
