By Aidan Brandt, Sophia Cosette Bloom, and Hunter Allen


Background information

Background Information

  • The tallest towers in the world are the Petronas Towers.

  • Buildings are made to withstand forces, such as: gravity, people inside, weight of building materials, and weather.

  • Shake tables… shake. 


Question

Question?

Will our replica towers withstand the force of a shake table, like a real tower and a earthquake?


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • If we put the table out of alignment by four centimeters then the towers will fall.


Materials

Materials

  • Lego Bricks.

  • One large Flat Lego Plate.

  • Metric Ruler.

  • 3- Ring Binder.

  • Scissors.

  • 4 Small Rubber Balls Of The Same Size.

  • 2 Large Rubber Bands.

  • Shake table.


Procedure 1

Procedure 1

  • Cut the front and back off a three ring binder with scissors.

  • Place the 2 binder covers on top of one another.

  • Rubber band the 2 together by stretching a rubber band around each end as about 1” from the edge of the board.

  • Insert the rubber balls between the boards at each corner placing them about 5cm from the edges.

  • The shake table should now be assembled.

  • Attach a large, flat, Lego mounting plate to the top of your shake table.

  • Make many towers with increasing height in the same pattern every time.


Procedure 2

Procedure 2

8. Measure each of the towers and make a data table and fill in the table with each of the heights

9. Put the towers on the shake table, and then, shake the table. 

10. Measure how far the bricks are out of alignment and record it in your data table.
