Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.
Effective, easy to install, cost-efficient: Vibration dampers are ideal for dissipating earthquake-induced energy from the main structure. Learn how the different damping systems function in earthquake-resistant construction.
Unexpected earthquakes not only cause high economic losses but also claim many lives, most being due to collapsing houses and buildings. In this article you will learn how earthquake-resistant construction can provide protection against this.
Primarily, horizontal load causes walls, floors, columns, beams, and the elements connecting them to vibrate, and finally leads to the collapse of buildings. Below we present 4 methods that protect building structures during severe earthquakes.
