Seismic Isolation of Building-Equipment System Using Modified Variable Friction Pendulum System
Keywords:Base isolation, MVFPS, Building- equipment, Near-fault ground excitation
In this study, building-equipment system with Modified Variable Friction Pendulum System (MVFPS) is investigated under different earthquake ground excitations. Earthquake response of building-equipment system isolated with MVFPS is compared with Variable Friction Pendulum System (VFPS) and Friction Pendulum System (FPS) in order to find efficiency of MVFPS. Newmark’s linear acceleration method is used for solving governing equation of motion for building-equipment system. In this investigation, different storey buildings are considered. It is observed that MVFPS is more efficient in reducing the recoverable energy than FPS, but less efficient than VFPS. From the comparative study, it is found that FPS shows robust performance in comparison to MVFPS and VFPS in reducing equipment acceleration and displacement.
