                 Objectives
   To demonstrate dynamic lateral-torsional
    coupling phenomenon exhibited by base-
    isolated buildings due to non-coincident
    center of mass and center of stiffness.

   To compare experimental simulation with
    numerical simulation.
                     Introduction
   Base-isolation is widely applied for seismic retrofit.

   Based-isolated buildings can be idealized as one-story
    structures with flexible cylindrical columns.

   In the real world all buildings are eccentric systems.

   Eccentric systems respond in laterally-torsionally coupled
    motions during earthquakes.
                       Background
   Eccentric System
    • A system with non-coincident center of stiffness and center of
      mass.
    • During dynamic excitation, the inertia forces can be modeled as
      acting through the center of mass, while the resultants of the
      resisting forces respond through the center of stiffness.
    • This creates a moment between the two opposing forces.
    • The torsional effect created is coupled with the lateral motion.
    • It is impossible to eliminate eccentricity in a building because one
      cannot predict the spatial distribution of the dead and live loads to
      make the center of mass coincide with the center of stiffness of the
      building.
           Background (contd.)
   Base-isolation
    • Typically cylindrical laminated-rubber bearings
      designed to take large shear deformations.
    • Used to lessen the damage done to buildings
      during earthquakes.
    • Essentially act as shock absorbers, so that the
      building undergoes less deformation.

    and added circular weights.
   Tape paper onto top plate.
   Using a milling machine and a 3/8” drill bit, drill holes at all the
    locations for the weights.
   Carefully clamp the top and bottom plates together, make sure the
    edges are parallel.
   Drill holes at the locations of the columns with a “G” bit, on the
    milling machine.
   Place the Plexiglas rods in the locations drilled, place a few drops of
    the adhesive in the space between the columns and the drilled holes
    and let dry (make sure the columns are flush with the plate).
   After waiting 30 minutes for the adhesive to dry, flip the plate over and
    place the rods so that they fit into the other plate.
   Use the adhesive once the columns are flush with this other plate.
