The Isolation Effect Analysis of Base and Story Isolation System in Vertical Seismic Action
Through establishing single material point model of base isolation system and two material points model of story isolation system in vertical earthquake, the isolation effect of base and story isolation system in vertical earthquake are studied. Results show that two kinds of isolation systems cannot effectively keep apart the vertical seismic action, and the effect is amplified on the contrary, especially the position of isolation layers in story structures affect the amplification effect. Compared with the base and story isolation structures, while using the same isolation device, the former is better than the latter in isolating vertical seismic action.
