Sliding girt with fluoroplastic for earthquake-proof building

Monitoring and testing of buildings and structures

Destruction of buildings is one of the principal consequences of earthquakes. Traditional antiseismic design methods based on the structure reinforcing are not always effective.

The aim of the work was creating the structure solution of active seismic insulation and evaluation the effectiveness of its use in a foundation. The active method of earthquake proof stipulates decrease seismic loads on erections due to the regulation their dynamic characteristics in time of oscillation process under earthquake.

Simulation methods of sliding girt made from fluoroplastic and building relocations under earthquake were elaborated in system SCAD.

The research showed that this method decreases the probability of building crush and reduce the amount of armature.
