New Developments in the Field of Seismic Isolation

by Michael C. Constantinou,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structures 2001: A Structural Engineering Odyssey


This paper will concentrate onwhat likely, is the most significant of these issues: changes in the mechanical properties ofseismic isolation and energy dissipation hardware as they are caused by aging, environmental effects and history of loading.

Subject Headings: Seismic tests | Seismic loads | Base isolation | Mechanical properties | Energy dissipation | Environmental issues | History | Concentrated loads
