Experimental Study on Effectiveness of a Prototype Seismic Isolation System Made of Polymeric Bearings
Seismic isolation is identified as one of the most popular and effective methods of protecting structures under strong dynamic excitations. Base isolators, such as Lead Rubber Bearings, High Damping Rubber Bearings, and Friction Pendulum Bearings, are widely used in practice in many earthquake-prone regions of the world to mitigate structural vibrations, and therefore minimize loss of life and property damage during seismic events....
Base isolators, like lead rubber bearings, high damping rubber bearings or friction pendulum systems are extensively used in practice in many seismically active regions to protect structures against earthquake forces. The present paper reports the results obtained from the experimental study aimed to determine the effectiveness of the Polymeric Bearings in suppressing structural vibrations during dynamic excitations and therefore...
