Study of Base-Isolation Building System

Authors: G. W. Ni, Y. M. Zhang, D. L. Jiang, J. N. Chen, B. Liu


In order to improve the effect of isolation structure, the principles and behaviours of the base-isolation system are studied, and the types and characteristics of the base-isolation are also discussed. Compared to the traditional aseismatic structures, the base isolation structures decrease the seismic response obviously: the total structural aseismatic value decreases to 1/4-1/32 and the seismic shear stress in the upper structure decreases to 1/14-1/23. In the huge seism, the structure can have an obvious aseismatic effect.

Keywords: dynamic response, Base-isolation, earthquake wave
