Seismic Independent Construction Technology
Seismic Independent Construction Technology,Base Isolation System
To many structural engineers, the conventional approach to protect buildings from the destructive forces of earthquakes is to increase the strength of the buildings so that they do not collapse during such events. This approach is not entirely effective in terms of protection afforded to the contents and occupants as a result of the application of the forces transmitted in to the building. Since the motion of earthquakes is vibrational in nature, the principle of vibration isolation can be utilized to protect a building is decoupled from the horizontal components of the earthquake ground motion by mounting rubber bearings between the building and its foundation. Such a system not only provides protection to the building but to its contents and occupants as well.
