CIE625: Aseismic Base Isolation

This course introduces the basic concepts of seismic (base) isolation and the seismic isolation systems that are widely used in North America. A focus is the analysis and design of individual elastomeric and sliding bearings, and seismic isolation systems. The use of energy dissipation devices as part of the isolation system is also examined. Testing of seismic isolators, project case studies and code provisions are discussed.
