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 can produce.

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 ratio. will win prizes for the most-efficient models.
