NHERI Lehigh Testing Shows Effectiveness of Rolling Pendulum Isolation Systems in EQ Damage Mitigation

You are here

Tests of a rolling-pendulum base-isolation system were performed as part of NSF award CAREER: Mitigation of Seismic Risk to Critical Building Contents via Optimum Nonlinear 3D Isolation (PI- Scott Harvey, University of Oklahoma, award #1943917). The work involved multi-directional real-time hybrid simulations (RTHS) of a rolling pendulum system for seismically isolating equipment in mission-critical buildings. Read More >>>
