Structural hazards

Source(s):  ParsQuake: Earthquake Education in the Global Persian Community

This lesson introduces students to some of the basic concepts behind structural hazards in the context of earthquakes. Many cities have a variety of building sizes, shapes, architectural styles, and materials. This lesson covers the basic ideas concerning how structures respond to earthquakes using a tabletop exercise and three hands-on activities. The tabletop exercise consists of visual analysis of actual pictures taken in earthquake areas in Central Asia. The hands-on activities will explore how structures respond to applied loads.
