This paper investigates the seismic response and optimum design of a base isolation system for earthquake protection of structures. The system incorporates spherical supports for the base, a specially designed spring-cam system to keep the base rigidly supported under normal conditions and to allow it to move for the duration of the earthquake under the constraint of a spring with optimized stiffness characteristics. A single degree of freedom structure was considered to investigate the feasibility of the concept. The simulation of the system response shows a 20 times reduction of the transmitted force as a result of using the proposed design in the considered case. This paper extends the previous study to the case a 3 story concrete structure subjected to the Taft as well as El Centro earthquakes. A 11.5 and 17 times reduction of the maximum transmitted force was achieved for the considered disturbances respectively without any adverse effects due to the tilting moment which is inherent in this type of base isolation. Since the system performance is highly dependent on the rapid unlocking of the cams in the event of a seismic disturbance, careful consideration should be given to the design of a reliable cam release control. This can be achieved by spring loading each cam such that it would be normally unlocked. A hydraulic actuator would be used to force it rotate to the locking position under fluid pressure which would be constantly maintained at the design level during normal conditions. The actuator would be equipped with a quick response release valve for rapidly releasing the pressure and consequently unlocking the cam as soon as an earthquake is detected.

Numerical Simulation of three Base Isolation Systems for Earthquake Protection of Structures
Dölen, Melik (null; 2003-10-10)
In a previous paper [1&2] a base isolation system was proposed for earthquake protection of structures. The system incorporates spherical supports for the base, a specially designed spring-cam system to keep the base rigidly supported under normal conditions and to allow it to move for the duration of the earthquake under the constraint of a spring with optimized stiffness characteristics. A high-rise structure was considered to investigate the feasibility of the concept. The simulation of the system respon...
Ground motion simulations based on regional input parameters and their impact on insurance premiums: Bursa case
Ünal, Barış; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Earthquake Studies (2015)
Determination of earthquake parameters are required for earthquake resistant design and retrofitting of exsisting structures. There are not many options to obtain earthquake data for regions with no or sparce earthquake recordings. Even though some methods are aplicable to these regions they generate only peak ground motion parameters. For cases that require the full ground motion simulations are necessary. Simulations can also be used for gaining knowledge about source, path and site effects. In this study...
Seismic design of lifeline bridge using hybrid seismic isolation
Dicleli, Murat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2002-03-01)
This paper presents the merits of a hybrid seismic isolation system used for the seismic design of a major bridge. The bridge is analyzed for two different arrangements of seismic isolation systems. The first arrangement consists of friction pendulum bearings at all substructure locations; the other incorporates a hybrid system where laminated elastomeric bearings are used at the abutments and friction pendulum bearings at the piers. Analysis results have demonstrated that the hybrid seismic isolation syste...
Linear modal combination procedure for structural dynamics
Tanışer, Sadun; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Earthquake engineering practice utilizes different analysis procedures in the estimation of seismic demands on structures. These procedures are mainly divided into two groups as static and dynamic procedures. Dynamic procedures are more accurate than the static procedures since they include the entire history of any response parameter during the ground motion. Nevertheless, there are also approximate but much simpler static analysis procedures that overcome high computational demands and inherent difficulti...
Energy based seismic assessment and design
Alıcı, Fırat Soner; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
The need to improve the reliability of current earthquake resistant design procedures has promoted energy-based concepts that employ seismic input energy and energy dissipation capacity of structures as the main design tools. Energy based approaches provide effective tools at both design and assessment stages for a comprehensive interpretation of the seismic behavior of structural systems during an earthquake excitation. Energy based assessment and design procedure includes two crucial aspects. The first on...
