Finite Element Analysis of a Sliding Isolation Steel Structure
Using general analysis software ANSYS establish non-isolated and isolation steel villa structure model, selecting a reasonable seismic wave and obtaining this via seismic excitation time-history analysis: sliding isolated structures can reduce seismic upload, slip shift seismic isolation layer absorbs most of the energy, can reduce seismic response of 23.1%~78.8% compared with ordinary anti-seismic structure. the level of isolation effect is remarkable.
