Arsan Has Been Preffered in Eurasia Tunnel Project
The 5.4-kilometer section of the Eurasia Tunnel, built with a special technology under the seafloor, covers a total of 14.6 kilometers. Structural bearings developed in ITU and Arsan laboratories were used throughout the project. By isolating the lower and upper slabs in the tunnel from the tunnel body, the seismic movements that can be exposed are prevented from directly affecting the bottom and top slabs. Meanwhile, the developed structural support with a natural frequency of more than 20HZ, which is a damper capable of transporting fixed or mobile traffic loads from the upper and lower floors to the consoles, will be able to enter the resonance system at the same time.
