Seismic insulation of buildings with elastomeric bearings

Želimir Šimunić, Davor Grandić

Abstract

Theoretical support data for seismic analysis of buildings insulated against earthquake action are presented. The seismic insulation with elastomeric bearings is presented on an example of a three-story building. This insulation enables significant reduction of seismic forces in structural and non-structural elements. The analysis of structures resistant to earthquake action in our country, and the use of elastomeric bearings in seismic insulation of structures, is described. An approximate method for calculating efficiency of seismic insulation is presented in the paper.
