Customizable Isolation Bearings
RJ Watson’s sliding isolation bearings dissipate seismic energy through friction, and each bearing can be designed to achieve a wide variety of energy dissipation levels. This control gives engineers the ability to optimize a structure’s response to seismic events. While originally designed for bridges, the EQS has also been used to mitigate seismic forces on buildings.
RJ Watson works with engineers, contractors and owners to create bridges and highways that reliably serve their communities while simultaneously solving engineering challenges. RJ Watson is available to work with you to create a cost effective solution for your specific project.
