Experimental Study and Analytical Prediction of Earthquake Response of a Sliding Isolation System with a Spherical Surface
This report describes the results of an experimental study of the behavior of a sliding isolation system with a spherical surface installed in a flexible structure with large aspect ratio. A series of shake table tests was ...
Evaluation of Accuracy of Simplified Methods of Analysis and Design of Buildings with Damping Systems for Near-Fault and for Soft-Soil Seismic Motions
The effect of near-field and soft-soil ground motions on structures with viscous-damping systems was examined. Damping modification factors for damping ratios up to 100% of critical were obtained for sets of near-field ...
