Multistory Buildings; Seismic Analysis; Displacement.
Due to increase in population, there is shortage of land and to overcome this, skyscrapers are opted for. These types of skyscrapers are influenced by natural phenomena. As such, earthquakes are the most dangerous due to the damage and impacts they cause to structural components, which cannot be controlled. These natural disasters cause structural damage and disrupt normal life cycle development. The term base isolation has two words: the first is 'base', meaning a part that supports or acts as a foundation beneath a structure, and the second is 'isolation', meaning the state of being uneven.. During seismic strikes, traditional building structures, where the foundation is fixed to the ground, respond with a gradual rise from ground level to the top of the building. This can result in serious damage or complete collapse of structures. To avoid these consequences as well as to meet functional requirements in service, resiliency is built into the base of the structure, usually by placing lead rubber bearing insulators between the structure and its foundation. Seismic base isolation is one of the best methods among side load resistance systems.
