Elastic support of JPL power plant turbine in Seoni, India. The site is located near village Barela -Gorakhpur, Tehsil Ghansore of Seoni District. JPL currently has 600 MW thermal capacity fully operational and 660 MW under implementation. The plant is generating power on commercial basis. With a total mass of about 28,750 tons, the turbine house of this power station is approx. 95 m long, 46 m wide and 39-m high.   In 2010, GERB was consulted by the operator of the power plant directly and asked for a vibration control solution. We started supporting the owner as…

Building isolation system retrofitted to existing steel columns The architect Daniel Isern, from Isern Associats, with the collaboration of NOLAC Enginyers (Structural Design and Calculation Consultants), AV Enginyers (acoustic consultants) and Albert Bordera (Executive Director of the work) were commissioned to convert the old building of the Catalan Land Institute into a five-star Hotel of the OHLA Boutique Hotels chain, with all its amenities and comfort. Challenge The problem posed by this old office building, for its conversion into a high standing hotel, is that underneath railroad tunnel created vibration immission levels inside, which made it unfeasible for…

GERB at ENLIT in Frankfurt, Germany | 29.11. – 01.12.2022 | EXPO Frankfurt Resource:https://www.enlit-europe.com/ Small modular reactor developments and the new generation of nuclear power plants require smart solutions in regard to the seismic protection of corresponding structures and equipment. To combine the different parts of the plant in a close vicinity also active and passive vibration isolation systems may become necessary. Settlement of the structure, parts of the structure, or even equipment is always a challenge for the civil engineers.    GERB provides a solution for all of these topics. Elastic support systems satisfy these tasks depending on…

Upgrade of Elastomeric Bearings to GERB Spring Elements Residential buildings are way more sensitive in case of vibrations because of the individual lifestyle and sentiments of each resident. Whereas a certain level of vibration stress is normal in an industrial environment, this does not apply to residential buildings, where people‘s quality of life is severely affected. Disturbing excitations need to be isolated to protect the living environment.   In this case, the vibrations originate from the operation of heat pumps on the roof of a residential building. The initial solution to isolate the vibrations was not successful and…

One of the world‘s longest driverless rapid transit lines with GERB spring elements in Singapore From Woodlands north to Sungei Bedok, Thomson-East CoastLine (TEL) will serve 32 stations in over 43 kilometers length. Whencompleted in 2022, TEL will be one of the longest driverless rapidtransit lines in the world. Construction program already started in2014 and was carried out by Land Transport Authority Singaporeand China Railways First Group. When fully opened, it is expected toserve about 500,000 commuters daily in the initial years, rising to one million commuters daily in the long term. A GERB Floating Slab Track system…

GERB Viscous Wall Damper (GVWD) GERB Viscous Wall Damper (GVWD) GERB Viscous Wall Damper (GVWD) Protection of buildings & structures against earthquakes and wind induced vibrations GERB Viscous Wall Dampers (GVWD) are a special design of common Viscodampers®. They are installed in buildings and structures connecting different floors. They are reducing inter-storey drift ratios during wind or seismic excitation. GVWD act in one horizontal direction and increase the overall damping of the structure. Reduced inter-storey drifts result in lower internal forces and moments improving comfort, safety and reliability. Protection of buildings & structures against earthquakes and wind induced vibrations….

GERB was approached by a petrochemical company from the middle east region to help mitigate vibration problems from one of their amine plants In total 4 units needed to be solved as vibration level exceeded allowable limits (see Figure 1). The customers internal process study revealed that there is slug flow in the piping which induces internal forces which cannot be eliminated. Considering the limitations like large bore (36”) piping, long vertical runs and the fact that most of the supports are attached to a pressure vessel, it is not feasible to modify the pipe routing or existing…

Providing elasticity at stiffness transition zones between concrete bridge and approach slab Within a comprehensive infrastructure development program, a railway company expanded their single railway network to a double track. The trains run on single, non-electrified tracks with a gauge of 1,000 mm and connects destinations with an expansive rail network of 4,000 km. With the objective to implement a maintenance-free and sustainable upgrade, GERB provided an elasticity solution that reduced all deleterious effects at the transition between concrete bridges and approached slabs. Challenge One remarkable feature of this railway network is the great number of bridges and…
