Earthquake proof: Japan building made quake-safe by curtain of cables anchoring it down - TomoNews

13938 ratings | 2155492 views
NOMI, JAPAN — A giant curtain of special cables is the latest earthquake-proofing innovation to come out of Japan, and it combines both functionality and sleek design. With Japan's location along the Pacific Ring of Fire making it prone to earthquakes, citizens are continually finding ways to protect the country's infrastructure. CNN reports that textile company Komatsu Seiren has created threads made from thermoplastic carbon fiber composite, which are braided to form a strong yet flexible rod that's as strong as iron, but 90 percent lighter. The rods have been installed outside the company's building - draping all around the structure and essentially tethering the roof to the ground. They are also inside the building, and serve to strengthen the interior walls. When the ground shifts from side to side during an earthquake, the rods stretch and pull the structure back in the opposite direction to prevent shaking. The project is a collaboration between Komatsu and Tokyo-based architectural design firm Kengo Kuma. It will soon be used to reinforce Zenkoji Temple in Nagano, one of Japan's oldest temples. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Why they dont make hundreds or thousands of Earthquake proof bed or EARTHQUAKE PROOF BOOTHS all around japan, so whem the earthquake strikes people immediately go to earthquake proof booths fit for 50 people each or hundred people each booth scattered all over japan, like in malls, office, parks, etc

1:55 Use GPS trackers to locate the beds in a earthquake related scenario. Doesn't take a genius to think of that; yet the designers manged to make such innovations.

Phantasmen_ (1 month ago)
this is most likely to be fake. Japan is very advanced when it comes to architecture so they don't need stuff like this. the do other things like making the buildings flexible so they can actually just move along.

There are much better technologies already in use, e.g. base isolation, braces with viscous dampers, and tuned mass dampers. So it seems more like an architectural feature than something worth implementing.

It will help in most scenarios but will do nothing if the ground itself ruptures.

I just can't stand the way they WASTE their money, while the kids in Africa die of hunger That's the reason why I HATE Japan It would be cheeper to let let the building collapse and then rebuild it Their buildings resist even to a 12-13 earthquake, but many people in Japan are homeless because the appartaments are so expensive, and they have very little salary because politicians JUST THROW COUNTRY'S MONEY ON THE DRAIN Plus however would japanese build them, anyway they won't resist ♾♾♾♾ The fact is that nature will always be stronger than some guys So you Japanese stop playing with fire cause you will be burn very badly (Sorry if my English is bad)

Scientists are destroying the nature and now they are challenging the nature. Remember that no one can challenge the nature as einstien said that every action has a reaction so stop destroying the nature otherwise nature will destroy you.

Earthquake proof bed is a joke. It’s supposed to protect you from falling debris or even in the case your house falls down? Well where then will all the rubble fall? Around your makeshift coffin. I’d rather be crushed in an instant than stuck in a box till I die of starvation or run out of air.

The earthquake bed is perfect when they dig your corpse out, or when they figure out how to open it, either from you or the outside.

We say in Serbia, Japanese are Martians, not humans ! We mean that people in Japan are examples of how people should be. I am so glad that Japan and Serbia are in perfect relations. This building is awesome!
