Development of Base-isolation Technology and its Influence on the Archtecture Design Conception in Future
Huang Yonglin et al.
Modern buildings using base-isolation technology are constructed all over the world. Quite a few isolated buildings have withstood strong earthquakes and shown good earthquake resistant behavior. The technical codes for isolated structure have been issued in several countries.It is expected that the base-isolation technology will be used more and more for various types of structures. The emerging of isolation technology will provide more desgn schemes for us to choose. Depending on the degree of safety to achieve structural control technique like active isolation,passive isolation or conventional seismic design method can be chosen. Each design scheme will ensure the personal security, property safety or the operation of facilities in the building. Such design concept and the corresponding technical codes are under study, which may be implemented in the next century.
