Technical specifications for the successful fabrication of laminated seismic isolation bearings

Abstract

High damping steel-laminated elastomeric seismic isolation bearings are becoming a preferred device for isolating large buildings and structures. In the United States, the current reference design for the Advanced Liquid Metal Reactor uses laminated bearings for seismic isolation. These bearings are constructed from alternating layers of rubber and steel plates. They are typically designed for shear strains between 50 to 100 percent and expected to sustain two to three times these levels for beyond design basis loading considerations. The technical specifications used to procure these bearings are an important factor in assuring thatthe bearings meet the performance requirements of the design. The key aspects of the current version of the Technical Specifications are discussed in this paper. (author)
