Indonesian Rubber Bridge Bearing Pads (Karet Elastomer Bantalan Jembatan)
Elastomeric Bearing Pads (Elastomer Jembatan) Structures are subjected to imperceptible displacements and rotations that have to be accommodated to protect the structure and surrounding infrastructure.
The most common causes of movement are:
- Temperature changes
- Traffic movement and braking
- Shrinkage and creep
- Foundation movement
- Post stressing
The function of the bearing is to safely accommodate the various movements and rotations as well as supporting the weight of the structure and to transmit the load through to the structures foundation.
Elastomeric Bearings are designed to accommodate three types of movement.
Theres two material of Elastomeric Bearing Pads :
- Elastomeric Bearing Pads Natural Rubber
- Neoprene Bearing Pads
and two type of Elastomeric Bearing Pads Elastomeric Bearing Pads Plain wih no plat inside and Laminated Elastomeric Bearing Pads
