Title
(EN) HYDROSTATIC FLUID CONTAINMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CONFINEMENT DE FLUIDE HYDROSTATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A hydrostatic fluid containment system, or flood barrier, that is positioned underground in its open state consisting of a buoyant wall which floats up and above ground level when submerged in a fluid, creating a seal from both buoyant vertical and hydrostatic horizontal forces on the containment wall imposed by the contained fluid. The system will not open prematurely and restrict access of vehicles or pedestrians until containment is necessary. The system comprises a pivot seal which seals the barrier on the upstream side, as well as another sealing element that is positioned between the pivot seal and the buoyant wall. The pivot helps to tilt the barrier towards the upstream direction.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de confinement de fluide hydrostatique, ou barrière contre les inondations, qui est positionné en sous-sol à son état ouvert, et comprenant une paroi flottante qui flotte vers le haut et au-dessus du niveau du sol lors d'une immersion dans un fluide, créant un joint d'étanchéité à la fois à partir des forces verticales de flottaison et des forces horizontales hydrostatiques sur la paroi de confinement, exercées par le fluide contenu. Le système ne va pas s'ouvrir prématurément et va restreindre l'accès de véhicules ou de piétons tant que le confinement est nécessaire. Le système comprend un joint d'étanchéité à pivot qui scelle la barrière sur le côté amont, ainsi qu'un autre élément d'étanchéité qui est positionné entre le joint d'étanchéité à pivot et la paroi flottante. Le pivot facilite l'inclinaison de la barrière dans la direction amont.
