Download Page for the Big Mac eBook
The "Civil Engineering Handbook" or "BigMac ebook" contains hands-on experiences and challenges that were designed and tested during the ELBigMac project.
These exercises complement topics addressed in physics classes or related disciplines. With simple examples it is possible to experiment the effects of soil liquefaction, of an earthquake or understand the structure of a stone bridge. These challenges were tested and validated by the partner institutions. The book is available digitally for easy access, but it can also be printed for use during activities.
Instead of dividing the eBook in the different areas, it was decided to make an interactive eBook with the possibility to download just parts of the activities or manuals. The launch of the book happened in the three countries during the proposed multiplier events and in the annual exhibitions.
