Scientists and Engineers teamwork tweak patented methodology
for mitigation of destructive effects of tsunami tidal forces
Russian scientists and inventers
have teamed up with American engineers and designers in the application of
updated patents on the dissemination, redirection, and mitigation of the
destructive effects of tsunami tidal forces.
This cooperation is a result of increased global awareness of the
vulnerability of densely populated urban coastal developments, ports, and other
highly critical infrastructure installments such as nuclear power facilities
and armed forces bases—globally.
The cooperation follows the uncanny
timing of further developments with Russian Federation patents (for worldwide
patenting) last year concerning the redirection of the hydraulic forces to
mitigate the effects of the ensuing tidal waves by reversing the hydraulic
dynamics of the energy itself. Inventor
Marsel Yanovich Bikbay, and others carried out this research in the months prior
to the Miyagi Prefecture, Fukushima disastrous tsunami on the eastern coastline
of Japan, 11 March 2011.
The teamwork since the
Japanese tsunami involves inventor Bikbay, working with patent attorneys in
Russia and the United States, along with members of Engineers Without Borders (www.EWB-USA.org) located in the United States. Bikbay explains that the application of the
in-shore devices for absorbing of energy by first redirecting the hydraulic
forces upon themselves requires no new technology with regard to construction
and installation of the devices: “All of the applied engineering currently
exists within the civil construction and precast/prestressed concrete sectors. This is why we feel that applying this
patented technology requires professionals who are well adept at the economical
manufacture of elemental concrete, and its practical applications”. It is noted that Bikbay is a well-respected
scientist specializing in Nano-cement technologies.
Heading up the practical
application of the patent is Robert Ober & Associates, of San Antonio,
Texas. The company specializes in
high-performance concrete production systems applied sciences and engineering,
with many of the associates Engineers Without Boarders volunteer members. Dr. Jerrolynn Kawamoto, of Robert Ober &
Associates, will manage the efforts for the firm in the USA. “Our goal
is to see that everything possible that can be done to avert the massively
destructive forces of tsunami is developed to the point of actual civil
undertakings in those areas globally, which can benefit. If we can assist in applying existing
technology and developing refined technologies to this end—we are going to do
so.” reports Robert Ober, CEO of the firm.
