Dynamics of 3-D Base Isolated Structures

by Michalakis C. Constantinou, Drexel Univ, Philadelphia, PA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Dynamic Response of Structures


The work described in this paper concerns the dynamic behavior of asymmetric base isolation systems consisting of laminated rubber bearings and hysteretic dampers. It is shown in this analysis that if the stiffness of bearings and the number and orientation of hysteretic dampers are properly selected (optimization) torsional coupling can be neglected even at very large eccentricities.
