Help? design of system to stabilise building in earthquake

  1. Mar 13, 2010 #1
    The project entails the design and simulation of a system to stabilize a building in the event of an earthquake. The idea is to numerically test the response of the system to earthquake conditions and see how it performs. It will also involve varying the relevant parameters to obtain the most satisfactory design. Could someone please guide me? I am completely new to systems dynamics (first year undergraduate) and i really would appreciate help. please read attached file:confused:

    Welcome to PF, Mythichaos.
    We don't answer homework/coursework questions here; instead, we try to guide you toward the answer. With that in mind, I would suggest thinking of counter-balance. Some of the shows that can be found at discovery.ca might help.
