How can I design Interlocking Hollow Blocks (IHB) and conduct an earthquake analysis?

      I'm a 10th Grade Student working on a research paper regarding interlocking blocks. We aim to design a block that can be effective against earthquakes. We would want to know how can we design IHBs and test a wall made out of them against earthquakes? Is it possible?

      Hello Aaron This sounds like an interesting project.
      ANSYS has several pieces of software that can help with this project. Start by learning to create solid models of the block using SpaceClaim.
      There are lots more videos you can find on YouTube.
      Once you have a block designed, there are several ways to simulate how stable the design is against earthquakes.
