3D-BASIS-TABS Version 2.0: Computer Program for Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of Three Dimensional Base Isolated Structures
This report describes the development of computer program 3D-BASIS-TABS, Version 2.0. The new program is an enhanced version of 3D-BASIS-TABS. The report should be viewed as a continuation and addition to previous reports ...
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. ...
3D-BASIS-ME:Computer Program for Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of Seismically Isolated Single and Multiple Structures and Liquid Storage Tanks
3D-BASIS-ME is a special purpose program for the nonlinear dynamic analysis of seismically isolated multiple buildings and liquid storage tanks. New features of this program, which do not exist in the currently available ...
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 Analytical Study of a Combined Sliding Disc Bearing and Helical Steel Spring Isolation System
A sliding isolation system consisting of Teflon disc bearings and helical steel springs is described. The system has been evaluated in shake table tests of a six-story, quarter scale, 52 Kip model structure and found to ...
Evaluation of Simplified Methods of Analysis for Yielding Structures
The study presented in this report is extremely relevant to the newly suggested Nonlinear Static Analysis Procedures suggested by FEMA 273 and 274. The report addresses, to a large extent, a simplified procedure using ...
