NEWS / Sumitomo Mitsui launches "spinning top" seismic protection


Sumitomo Mitsui Construction has launched a new seismic damping system for bridges. The technology involves the use of attenuation devices strung diagonally between the bridge's piers using a pair of connectors. The "tops" spin when an earthquake causes the connectors to move, helping prevent vibrarions from being transferred to the bridge.
