To make the acoustic performance an extraordinary experience again, GERB designed and integrated a Floating Slab Track system for Basel Tram.When the music hall was realized in 1876, the walls were built directly on the foundations of the historic city wall and the vault of the Birsig (river). The city wall itself is rigidly connected to the Birsig vault. Over the years, the components have been firmly connected to the tram via pipelines, cable tunnels and a pedestrian underpass, resulting in numerous structure-borne noise bridges. Vibrations from passing trams are transmitted to the music hall and radiated as…

A vibration-isolated mixed-use complex in the immediate vicinity of Aachen Central Station, Germany. Spread over five buildings and almost 25,000 m², people will live, work and shop here in the near future. A common base at ground floor is intended for retail and gastronomy. In the two centrally located, six-storey buildings, 300 high-quality, furnished student apartments as well as a fitness area, a cinema and a bicycle parking garage are being built. A glass staircase connects the houses with each other. Towards the train station there are two eight- and six-storey office buildings with a total of…

To protect the ArtHouse residential building from rail traffic, GERB designed an elastic support solution. The ArtHouse at Kings Cross is located directly above the Piccadilly underground line and consists of basement car parking, retail shops on the ground floor and seven storeys of residential accommodation. The building is a concrete frame on piled foundations and is situated along the west side of York Way approximately 500 metres to the north of King’s Cross Station. Just to the west of the building run three tunnels to Kings Cross Station. Challenge Vibrations from rail traffic enter the building via…

Base Control System (BCS) for student apartment in Mendoza Argentina The Mendoza Campus of the Technical National University of Argentina commissioned in 2004 the construction of a set of buildings with the main purpose of providing housing facilities to their students. The Mendoza province is located in the western part of Argentina, in the most seismically active region of the country. Two of the dormitory buildings constructed in the Mendoza Campus were identically designed and built. One of them should be placed on an earthquake protection system. FE-Model of the Apartment Building Challenge Table 1: Seismic Qualification…

Discussions as well as experience show that damping is a crucial factor to reduce the destructive potential of earthquakes. GERB Viscous Wall Dampers (GVWD) are a special design of common Viscodampers®. They are installed in buildings and structures connecting different floors addressing shear deformation between them. In this position they are especially reducing interstorey drift ratios during wind or seismic excitation. https://youtu.be/wwAAnwIyO68 Seismic energy absorption through induced damping instead of intended damage Earthquakes can have different effects on buildings depending on their duration, ground conditions and construction of the building. At the earth‘s surface, the earthquake waves cause…
