Study on Disk Spring Two-Storey Rolling Isolator
In this paper, a new type of disk spring two-storey rolling seismic isolator was developed. The two-storey rolling isolator isolates horizontal earthquake with metallic dampers to restore to normal position, limit displacement and dissipate energy. The disk spring isolates vertical earthquake. Adopt MATLAB to build the shear model, and contrasts the earthquake response between the base-isolated structure and the unbase-isolated structure.
