Understanding Elastomeric Bearings

To grasp the significance of advanced applications and innovations, it's important to have a basic understanding of elastomeric bearings. Elastomeric bearings are made from rubber compounds (elastomers) and are widely used in structural engineering to provide support and flexibility for various structures. They play a crucial role in minimizing the effects of dynamic loads, thermal expansion, and vibration-induced stress.

 

Advanced Applications

  1. Seismic Isolation - One of the most significant advancements in elastomeric bearing technology is its application in seismic isolation. With the ability to absorb and dissipate energy during earthquakes, elastomeric bearings ensure the safety and stability of structures. These bearings help reduce the transmission of seismic forces to the superstructure, minimizing the risk of structural damage.
  2. Bridge Construction - Deevin Seismic Systems Pvt Ltd has introduced innovative elastomeric bearings specifically designed for bridge construction. These bearings provide the necessary support, while simultaneously allowing for controlled movement due to factors like temperature variations and traffic loads. By reducing the impact of these forces, elastomeric bearings increase the lifespan and functionality of bridges.
  3. Building Expansion Joints - Elastomeric bearings are used in building expansion joints to accommodate movements caused by thermal expansion, sway, and settlement. These advanced bearings offer optimized flexibility and durability, ensuring long-term structural integrity. Deevin Seismic Systems Pvt Ltd's innovations in this field have resulted in superior designs that offer extended service life and reduced maintenance requirements.
