TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES

TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES

Device to rescue drawn people in the tsunami water by lifting them up to the water surface taking advantage of tsunami water flow. At the same time the device constitute refuge from tsunami.

The device can constitute various types of facilities that can constitute SAFETY NET OF LIVES and EVACUATION NETWORK in the region.

(PATENTED)

Evacuation lifting methods for elderly and people with disabilities

Evacuation lifting methods for elderly and people with disabilities

Evacuation lifting method for elderly and handicapped people: Utilizing counter weight or body weight of the helper, it functions without electricity.

Being developed in collaboration with Mr. Hirofumi Konishi, one of the representative climber of Japan to incorporate mountaineering rescue techniques.

Advanced utilization of flap gates for sea walls combined with TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES

Advanced utilization of flap gates for sea walls combined with TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES

Combination facilities of TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES and sea walls with flap gates brings benefits: Flooded water can be drained safely from the region. It can be applied not only to sea walls but to river banks.


RETRACTABLE STRUCTURE SYSTEM

Structure mechanism that can be applied to disaster prevention related facilities, etc. which can be stored flat in road or ground. In the event of a tsunami or flood, it rises by harnessing the energy of the water stream.

RETRACTABLE STRUCTURE SYSTEM

The above image is a TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES with debris guards constructed in the retractable mechanism. By providing power, the retractable mechanism can be applied to normal use facilities that can be stored in the ground surface when not in use. (PATENTED)

FILTER FOR DRIFTING DEBRIS

FILTER FOR DRIFTING DEBRIS

Filter for stick-shaped debris drifting in tsunamis/floods. It filters long timber etc, that tend to share huge volume of tsunami/flood debris due to demolition of wooden houses.
It can be designed to function as TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES by introducing the caught stick-shaped debris along its slits to incline to form the surface of TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES to lift up drifted people.

TSUNAMI RESCUE BASE

TSUNAMI RESCUE BASE

Normally it functions as an observation platform or a management facility of a harbor, but at the time of a tsunami or other disasters, it becomes a evacuation destination and simultaneously functions as a base for rescue activities from land, sea and sky.


FLOOD EVACUATION VEHICLE

Proposal and technical consideration of tsunami/flood evacuation car that can float by the buoyancy of the air bag and insulation material filled in the gap space. (detail page in preparation)

FLOOD EVACUATION VEHICLE

I suppose some people come up with such a car.

During common use, air bags installed around the perimeter of the car swell just before the collision as per the instruction from computer system to secure the safety of the driver and passengers, and at the same time, to protect the opponent who collides.

In addition, urethane foam filling the gap of the car body enhances heat insulation and reduces air conditioning energy.

When a tsunami or flood strikes, it activates the airbag system by sensing flooding and floats like a rubber boat to evacuate due to the buoyancy of the airbag, insulation material and other voids.

STRUCTURAL SUSPENSION SYSTEM / WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW

STRUCTURAL SUSPENSION SYSTEM / WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW

Structural system that can prevent from receiving a huge dynamic load from a water stream by a tsunami or a flood.

If applied to the walls of buildings, the walls can be flown off or rotated to open to avoid building collapse.

Moreover, utilizing this mechanism, it is possible to constitute a special fence that can function as TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES by rotating when flooded. (PAT.P)

ILLUMINATION EVACUATION DIRECTION SYSTEM

ILLUMINATION EVACUATION DIRECTION SYSTEM

Nowadays, research is under way to grasp the kaleidoscopic situation of the earthquake and tsunami that has just occurred, to promptly predict the progress of the disaster in the near future using AI for effective evacuation. We propose evacuation direction system that leads evacuees to the safest nearby shelters with special light indicators that illuminate based on the analysis of such IoT systems.

The indicators guide the evacuees to the best evacuation destination with their light colors, etc. seeable from where he or she is.

TSUNAMI PROOF BUILDING detail animation of TSUNAMI PROOF BUILDING

TSUNAMI PROOF BUILDING

Combining WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW and TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES (fence type device) for building walls realize a building proofed well for tsunamis and floods: Reduces the force of water flow to avoid demolition and saves the residents drawn in the water inside the building promptly after flooded, not limited to the people cast ashore from outside of the building.
In addition, we propose various technologies such as locking and deformation mechanism, lifting evacuation system, etc. to realize further proofed building against tsunamis and floods.

Please also refer to the WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW and

 TSUNAMI-PROOF CONDOMINIUM.

TSUNAMI-PROOF CONDOMINIUM

TSUNAMI-PROOF CONDOMINIUM

Condominium that can function as a TSUNAMI RESCUE FACILITIES by releasing walls and rotating fences that are applied with STRUCTURAL SUSPENSION SYSTEM / WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW" when flooded.

TSUNAMI EVACUATION ELEVATOR

TSUNAMI EVACUATION ELEVATOR can evacuate elderly people and people with disability to the upper floor in the state of power loss due to tsunami and flooding. (Detail page in preparation)

TSUNAMI EVACUATION ELEVATOR

Buoyancy material attached to the bottom of the elevator car lifts it up according to the flooded water level when a tsunami or a flood attacks.

When evacuate, evacuees must get on the car before the rising water reaches around the floor level. During water level is rising, basically the evacuees wait in the car which is being pushed up by the water. When the water level drops, the reverse check mechanism stops the car at the nearest floor so the evacuees evacuate safely to the floor.

LOFT SHELTER

Loft Shelter

Proposal of a loft shelter (survival space) for tsunamis and floods utilizing the back space of the false ceiling that is usually useless space except for ducting/wiring.

If the building structure is reinforced concrete, it can be planned and constructed very easily.

(Partially PAT.P)

Others

For others, we propose ideas/methods for disaster prevention such as followings (detail pages are in preparation):

Tsunami fire extinguishing method

Proposal of extinguishing method for tsunami fire due to spillage of flammable liquid: extinguishing/preventing fire by covorring outflown flammable liquid with nonflammable liquid in lighter specific gravity than the flammable liquid or foamed effervescent liquid. (detail pages are in preparation)


Grid evacuation system by utility poles and cables

Proposal of evacuation method as a last resort from a tsunami. We might utilize a heavy load such as a transformer as a lifting weight. Cables designed to resist horizontal stress under normal conditions can also be used for horizontal movement for evacuation across utility poles. Please also refer to Evacuation lifting methods for elderly and people with disabilities . (detail pages are in preparation)


Retractable sea walls

Retractable sea wall system reliable for operation but simple structure


Remote actuation system

Actuation transmitting system using cables between remote parts under loss of power


Locking and releasing device for transforming structures in tsunamis and floods

Usually movable joints of the structure are locked for safe use, but once sunk in the water, they are released for transform of the structure to achieve special purpose.
Also refer to STRUCTURAL SUSPENSION SYSTEM / WALL OPENING SYSTEM FOR PARRYING WATER FLOW.


Suspension mechanism for buoyant haven

We propose suspension system behaving in ideal way when flooded

The ideas/methods introduced in this page are basically work without electricity that is expected to lose in the severe disaster and most of them are designed to function by taking advantage of natural energy, such as, water flow, in passive way.
