When projects dictate, our engineers work with specialist external organisations to implement rigorous testing programmes.
Working with French energy company EDF, we implemented testing of our SAFB to demonstrate effectiveness in post-earthquake flood conditions.
Testing was undertaken at Bristol University’s Earthquake Engineering Research Centre where a 15 tonne, Six Axis Earthquake simulator was utilised to test functionality following S1 & S2 category quake.
Results showed the SAFB was essentially rigid at frequencies within normal seismic test range of 0-35Hz.
Testing was witnessed by representatives of EDF and University of Bristol.
