The EradiQuake System (EQS) is a state of the art Isolation Bridge & Structural Bearing System designed to minimize forces and displacements experienced by structures during an earthquake
The Kingston Rhinecliff Bridge over the Hudson River in New York is a seismic retrofit project. 16 EQS Seismic Isolation Bearings were installed with a vertical capacity of 215 to 665 Kips
Seismic Isolation Bearings are the most technologically advanced means of protecting a structure against earthquake forces. They are one of the most powerful tools in earthquake engineering for isolating a structure and helping to protect them from the most devastating consequences of a seismic event. Simply stated, they are a collection of structural elements which should substantially decouple or isolate a superstructure from its substructure resting on a shaking ground thus protecting a bridge or building’s structural integrity.
