Laboratorio de Estructuras. Escuela Politécnica Superior. Universidad CEU San Pablo. Campus de Montepríncipe. Urbanización Montepríncipe. 28668 Boadilla del Monte.

We will spend the European Researchers Night in the CEU Institute of Technology Building Structures lab, learning about the behavior of tall buildings structures under earthquakes effects. We will use a machine that reproduces seismic movements, and we will test anti-seismic devices in models of towers 6.5 feet (2 meters) tall. The models will be made of K'nex pieces. The activity will help us learn how we can conceive anti-seismic strategies used in real buildings.
