On February 28th 2019 civil engineering department at Tishk International University Sulaimani organized the Earthquake Resistant Building Competition that was held in Tishk International University Sulaimani, civil engineering department conference hall.
The competition was spectacular between ambitious groups. 11 groups attended the competition; the groups competed between each other according to the maximum efficiency ratio that could be found from an equation previously given to the students.
The aim of the competition was to enable the students to use different design methods to create a building model that can sustain the maximum earthquake excitation with a very simple unconventional building material ply wood and mdf, by this mean to allow them to use the theoretical background they have so far learned from the classes to put into the practice.
The groups which have the first, second and third places will compete as a representative of Tishk International University Sulaimani to the national competition between universities in Kurdistan Region.
