Paper Title:
Analysis for the 3-Dimensional Time History Response of a Base-Isolated Building Structure
  Abstract

In this paper, the models of traditional anti-seismic and base-isolated masonry and concrete frame composite structures were created by the three-dimensional finite element program and their time history responses were analyzed under the actions of different seismic waves. The results show that whether they were under the action of frequently occurred earthquake or rarely occurred earthquake, the story shears of base-isolated structure are far less than those of traditional anti-seismic structure; the lateral displacements of the former are nearly translational, while those of the latter are approximately parabolic; and the fundamental period of the former is much longer than the counterpart. In conclusion, the seismic fortification intensity of base-isolated structure is one or two degree less than that of traditional anti-seismic structure, and adopting the base-isolated structure will protect the life-safety and property of people and achieve good economic benefits as well.
