30. EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL STUDY OF A SYSTEM CONSISTING OF SLIDING BEARINGS AND FLUID RESTORING FORCE/DAMPING DEVICES

This report describes an experimental study of the behavior of a bridge seismic sliding isolation system consisting of flat sliding bearings and fluid restoring force/damping devices. Earthquake simulator tests were performed on a model bridge structure both with isolators and without. The experimental results demonstrate a marked increase of the capacity of the isolated bridge to withstand earthquake forces. Analytical techniques are used to predict the dynamic response of the system and the obtained results are in very good agreement with the experimental results.
