Study on a Simple Self-Resetting Sliding Isolation
This paper presents a simple Self-resetting sliding isolation system, which is composed of graphite sliding device and simple rubber bearing. Theoretical analysis is carried out. Shaking table test for a typical brick masonry structure in village of China is performed on a 1:4 scale. Results show that the proposed new isolation system can achieve a favorable level of performance.
