Critical infrastructure, such as hospitals must be protected against earthquakes Slobozia, Romania – 120 km east of Bucharest is the capital of Ialomiţa County. A region that is regularly hit by small to moderate earthquakes. In 2020 alone, the Ialomiţa was affected by 9 earthquakes. Back in 2007, it was clear the hospital, which is providing health care for more than 250,000 people, needed a seismic protection upgrade. Challenge The project challenged on two levels. First, the structure of Slobazia hospital was already built and therefore seismic control solutions were needed to develop that can adapt to already…

Protecting teaching experimental equipment from vibration and structure-borne noise The extension of Beijing University was completed at the end of August 2021 with a new teaching and office building providing more space for students and staff. GERB has already supported the project in 2018 with engineering and delivering an elastic support solution to protect members and structures from unwanted vibrations. Challenge A subway line running underground threatened the new structure with negative effects of vibration that could cause affect the normal use of the teaching equipment as well as a significant reduction of comfort for people in the…

GERB‘s first building project on spring elements in India is currently being implemented in Mumbai City,Maharashtra. In 2018 Shrem got in touch with GERB by introducing their architect and consultant new designed Fairmont hotel. As Shrem is a developer in hospitality real estate and infrastructure, the requirements in this project focus on high customer comfort and safety standards. Due to increased threats from vibrations in the metropolitan area, the structure demanded a GERB vibration isolation solution. With our mission to increase comfort and protect against vibrations, structure-borne noise and earthquake, the client could rely on our full support….

Viscodampers® Optimal damping with GERB visco-elastic dampers GERB Viscodampers® are viscous elastic vibration dampers utilizing the dissipative properties of highly viscous fluids to dampen movements in all spatial directions simultaneously. They basically consist out of three components: The lower part of the damper forms the housing, which is filled with the damping medium. The upper part or piston is immersed in the viscous medium and can move freely up to the housing walls. By shearing and displacing the highly viscous fluid Viscodampers® create approximately velocity proportional damping forces. Mechanical vibration energy is converted into heat and dissipated into the…

Helical Steel Spring Elements Safety and reliability with GERB’s spring elements Spring elements with helical compression springs are used for the project-specific and reliable support of structures. The relevant natural frequencies, which depend on the springs’ elastic properties in the vertical and horizontal directions, the permanent load, as well as the geometry of the supported structure, are in the range of 1 – 5 Hz vertically and 0.5 – 3 Hz horizontally. The most economical support frequency is around 3 – 3.5 Hz.   The precise choice of properties of the spring elements reduces dynamic forces, depending on the…
