Development of Seismic Isolation Device for Container Crane
The Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake
- Almost all of the quays were unavailable.
- All of the 55 container cranes were unavailable.
- Breakdown of cargo handling functions (2 years to recover)
- Decrease in economic activities and international competitiveness
Conventional Seismic Isolation Method
- The conventional method aims to decrease the response acceleration spectrum using seismic isolation rubber etc.
New Seismic Isolation Device (Friction Seismic Isolation Method)
Model Experiment (three-dimensional trembling board)
Institutions available for experimental device set up
