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 ...
Investigation of Seismic Response of Buildings with Linear and Nonlinear Fluid Viscous Dampers
This report presents results of the first systematic experimental study of nonlinear fluid viscous dampers. Earthquake simulation tests have been performed on one- and three-story model structures with and without linear ...
Study of Seismic Isolation Systems for Computer Floors
The work described in this report concentrated on the development and testing of computer floor seismic isolation systems by utilizing devices of established effectiveness in the seismic isolation of buildings and shock ...
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 ...
