3D-BASIS - Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of Three-Dimensional Base Isolated Structures: Part II
This report deals with the development of a comprehensive analytical model and solution algorithm for nonlinear dynamic analysis of three-dimensional base isolated structures and the development of computer program 3D-BASIS. ...
Evaluation of SEAOC Design Requirements for Sliding Isolated Structures
The Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) developed "Tentative General Requirements for the Design and Construction of Seismic Isolated Structures" in 1990. The SEAOC report specifies analysis ...
3D-BASIS-M: Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of Multiple Building Base Isolated Structures
Over the last few years, a special purpose computer program, 3D-BASIS, has been developed for the dynamic analysis of base isolated building structures. This program was described in NCEER reports 89-0019 and 91-0005. In ...
Experimental and Theoretical Study of a Sliding Isolation System for Bridges
A seismic isolation system for bridges has been tested on a shake table. The system consisted of Teflon disc bridge bearings and displacement control devices. These devices provided restoring force for re-centering the ...
