Diameters and dome strength
This science fair project was done to investigate how the strength of a dome is affected by increasing its diameter while maintaining its height. As the construction of a dome is sophisticated, the tests were done using an arch, which has similar properties to a dome.
Comparing flat and dome shaped drain covers.
This science fair project was done to compare the performance of a flat drain cover and a dome shaped drain cover. The tests were conducted using leaves, grass, soil and plastic wrappers.
Arches - how strong are they?
This science fair project aims to investigate the strength of an arch. The experiment is carried out using plywoodof different lengths bent into an arch and fixed to a test stand.
Why are some skateboards more expensive than others? One of the factors influencing pricing, is the quality (and consequently, the price) of its bearings. This science fair project aims to find out how the the quality of the bearings of a skateboard affects its performance. Tests will be carried out on 5different types of bearings
Does the type of sand affect the durability of bricks
What makes some bricks stronger than others? This science fair project aims to compare the effect of sand particle size on brick durability.
Skyscraper shapes and wind forces
The science fair project was carried out to determine which shape works most effectively for a skyscraper in withstand winds of high velocity. This information would be very useful for building engineers. The experiment was performed on model buildings with rectangular, triangular, circular and oval cross-sections
Humidity and its effect on various species of wood
This science fair project was conducted to determine the effect of atmospheric moisture on different types of wood. The science fair project was done by comparing the effect of moisture on redwood, teak, black oak and red maple wood.
Evaluating the effectiveness of tidal wave barriers
This science fair project was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of two types of tidal wave barriers: Which best reduces the onslaught of tidal waves in a natural disaster? A man-made barrier (reconstructed from clay) or an artificial mangrove swamp (reconstructed from plastic grass)?
Ceiling height and room temperature
This science fair project was conducted to ascertain how the height of a ceiling affects room temperature. The science project was carried out using cardboard boxes of varying height - 1meter, 2 meters and 3 meters.
Expansion and shrinking of wood
This science fair project was conducted to better understand how different types of wood shrink and expand when exposed to moisture. The science project experiment involved redwood, teak, black oak and red maple woods.
