Presentation Transcript

By Aidan Brandt, Sophia Cosette Bloom, and Hunter Allen

• 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. 

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

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

• 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.

• 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.

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.
