 Title & Authors
Seismic base isolation for structures using river sand
Patil, S.J.; Reddy, G.R.; Shivshankar, R.; Babu, Ramesh; Jayalekshmi, B.R.; Kumar, Binu;
Generally seismic isolation is achieved by supporting the structure on laminated rubber bearings, friction pendulum bearings, roller bearings etc. Very little work has been performed using soil as a base isolation media. Experiments and analytical work has been performed on a structural model with isolated footing and found encouraging results. Details of this work are presented in this paper.
