A Study on 3D Isolation Effect on High-Rise Building Subjected to Near-Field Ground Motions
Isolation technology is widely applied in civil engineering nowadays, while it is indicated by seismic damage investigations that the effect of vertical motion on buildings under earthquake couldn’t be ignored. In order to study the 3D isolation effect on high-rise buildings subjected to near-field ground motions, the finite element analysis of an 11-story reinforced concrete frame-shear wall building is conducted, three ground motions are selected, three kinds of structural model are calculated, which are without isolation, with horizontal isolation and with three-dimensional isolation. By analyzing and comparing the seismic response results of models, the 3D isolation effect is studied, and some conclusions are obtained.
