Paper Title:
A New Passive Seismic Control Device for Protection of Structures under Anomalous Seismic Events
  Abstract

In this paper, the possibility offered by the Base Isolation System, designed according to the strategy of limitation seismic force, in order to ensure a significant level of robustness to the isolated superstructure, has been analyzed. In according to the strategy of limitation seismic force, a new seismic isolator called HDHSI (High Damping Hybrid Seismic Isolator) is proposed, obtained by the assembly in series of a LRB (Lead Rubber Bearing) and a FS (Friction Slider) with high friction coefficient. The HDHSI device is in contrast to the R-FBI (Resilient-Friction Base Isolation) isolator and is the optimization of the EDF (Electricité De France) system. A modeling with HDHSI devise has been presented by using nonlinear finite elements NLlink (Nonlinear link) and nonlinear dynamic analysis for a SDOF system with harmonic force, in order to characterize the cycle-hysteretic behavior of the device for different levels of shear deformation, are performed. Nonlinear dynamic analysis for a RC structure, base isolated by the proposed devices, are performed. As seismic actions, have been adopted the following registrations: an anomalous earthquakes for intensity and in particular El Centro earthquake (N00W component, 1940) with different amplification factors; an anomalous earthquake for frequency content and in particular Erzincan earthquake (N90W component, 1992).
