17. SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY MEDICAL CENTER REPLACEMENT PROJECT TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

This specification covers the set of 186 fluid viscous dampers used on the five buildings of the new San Bernardino County Medical Center located in Colton, California. Three major faults are close to this location. The dampers operate in parallel with elastomeric base isolators, and reduce the required isolator stroke from +/- 48 inches to +/- 22 inches. This specification is very detailed and includes testing requirements.
