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

19297 ratings | 3212034 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.

Another issue: High buildings vs strong wind How about giving wings to skyscrapers so that they can balance the swinging of the building. What's more, wings could break the wind just like the brakes on an airplane:)

We filipinos are concerned to THE BIG ONE experts say it might be an 7.2 earthquake or greater and with an itensity of 8-9 our fault is ready to slip anytime soon cause mathematically every 400 years it happens and the last one was 356 years ago.. The fault is now ready to slip..

It is written Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the Lord of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger. Isaiah 13:13 NKJV “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; Haggai 2:6 NKJV For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:7‭-‬8 NKJV

There's nothing earthquake proof. Some may fare well, some don't. This on the video only works against shaking, what if the building is torn right in the middle? Or the ground was torn in the middle, you can't stop that.

Ian Cezar Yap (1 month ago)
You are aware that there are earthquakes categorized from 1 to 10? Those on the lower spectrum can't destroy "everything", althought at some point can damage something. I'm not arguing against the will of Allah but technically earthquakes were made for tectonic shifts, contributing change to the topographic image of land.
