INNOVATIVE GROUND INTERFACE CONCEPTS FOR STRUCTURE PROTECTION

Project description

Unnatural materials may protect structures from natural and man-made vibrations

Rumbling of the ground beneath our feet can originate from a variety of sources, both below and above the ground. Whether caused by the passage of cars and trains, construction or mining or by seismic events, these ground-based vibrations can have an important impact on structures and infrastructure – and on people in the case of failure. The EU-funded INSPIRE project is harnessing the combined potential of bright young researchers and metamaterials in a training network focussed on developing man-made materials engineered to inhibit wave propagation in all spatial directions.
