So, how does Civil Engineering shape
our world? How do we protect people from water related hazards like flooding? Looking at this simulation, what are the
challenges for building safer schools in Nepal? How do we design cities to improve our
standards of living? What do you think are the constraints with a project like this? How can we develop our construction
processes to lower our carbon footprint? So we’ve got examples of instability in these slopes where they could collapse and undermine structures above. What do you think this means for communities who have to build on such high risk slopes? What sort of methods of stability do they use? Are there any ways that bridges can be protected from flooding? What techniques are used in the design
of masonry structures to ensure that their earthquake resilient? Is it possible to retrofit existing structures to make them more resistant?
