Abstract:

Prepared by the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC), a CERF Service Center.

This report summarizes the results of an evaluation that was designed to test the performance of 11 seismic isolators and dampers. The devices were tested for stability, response during earthquake simulations, and fatigue and weathering effects.
