Protect coat Demon House of Earthquake Impact.
The development of “stealth coat” for the last few years has been increasingly mature. Scientists have been able to make an object becomes visible on a number of lines of light that has a specific wavelength in a different way.
Illmuwan UK is currently developing a similar stealth installation to create a skyscraper “disappeared”, so it is not affected by the earthquake damage.
The working principle of “stealth coat” is a bend toward the light that hit the line around an object, thus making it invisible. Researchers from the University of Manchester using a similar principle, by using rubber anti pressure to deflect the pressure resulting from the earthquake to the buildings, so we get the effect of “hiding” and protect the building.
Professor William Parnell pemprakarsa this study stated that in future this method can reduce the number of casualties caused by the earthquake. They believe if the rubber is applied to the anti-pressure reactors, power lines, government buildings, etc., will be able to protect these buildings from earthquake damage.
Parnell in penjelaskannya, that in the field of stealth materials, both in theory and application of, clearly has achieved a substantial breakthrough. Five to six years ago, scientists have studied this field in terms of light waves, and over the last few years have begun to examine the types of waves in the sound and elastic waves.
He said his research team has proven, natural materials such as rubber in theory have the effect of protecting themselves from certain types of elastic waves. They’re trying to find more general theory, to then be applied in real life.
Parnell said: “Research shows that we may be able to control the direction and speed of elastic waves is. It is very important, because we hope to apply this type of wave is different in many other areas, especially in applications at the nanoscale.
If this theory can be raised in proportion to applied to larger objects, then we will be able to create a stealth installation to protect a skyscraper, or to protect the most important part of a building. “
The research results were published in Proceedings of The Royal Society UK.
