Scientific Matinee at the Moise Palace

Why do buildings and bridges (not) collapse during an earthquake

On Saturday, October 16, 2021, we started a new program on the island of Cres: “Scientific matinee at the Moise Palace”. The program will be held once a month for children.

We started the program with an interactive workshop: “Why do buildings and bridges (not) collapse during an earthquake?” The workshop was held by Nina Čeh, assistant professor at the Department of Technical Mechanics of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, and Laura Žiković, assistant professor at the Department of Technical Mechanics. The workshop dealt with the basics of statics and structural dynamics. Some of the answered questions during the workshop are: What is statics? What are dynamics? What will happen when two bodies collide- will they bounce off each other or keep moving? How can we put together a stable construction? How can we strengthen it and ensure it remains stable even when a strong wind blows or an earthquake occurs?
