Title:
A CLASS OF BEARINGS TO PROTECT STRUCTURES FROM EARTHQUAKE AND OTHER SIMILAR HAZARDS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/081769
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A class of bearings, each of them can be used as a connecter to connect two parts in a structural system and as a supporter to transfer loads from one part to another, for examples, gravity of a superstructure to a substructure in a bridge or a building, or that of a machine to its foundation. While performing load transmission, it is able to reduce the transmission of transient vibrations between connected two structural parts and preserve the integrity of entire structural system; for examples, to protect a bridge's structural integrity when either an earthquake strikes its pier and foundation or a tsunami hits its superstructure or both occur simultaneously.
