Abstract: The European Laboratory for Structural Assessment (ELSA) is one of the world¿s main laboratories for seismic studies. Besides its research activities, it also aims to bring applied science closer to the public. This article describes teaching activities based on a demonstration shaking table which is used to introduce the structural dynamics of buildings. The phenomenon of soil liquefaction is also illustrated and explained.
