BS ISO 22762-6. Elastomeric seismic-protection isolators Part 6. High-durability and high-performance specifications and test methods
|Standard number:||21/30403755 DC|
|Status:||Draft for Comment|
This standard 21/30403755 DC BS ISO 22762-6. Elastomeric seismic-protection isolators is classified in these ICS categories:
- 83.140.99 Other rubber and plastics products
- 91.120.25 Seismic and vibration protection
This document specifies specifications and test methods for elastomeric seismic isolators used for buildings to guarantee high-durability and high-performance.
It is applicable to elastomeric seismic isolators used to provide buildings with protection from earthquake damage. The isolators covered consist of alternate elastomeric layers and reinforcing steel plates. They are placed between a superstructure and its substructure to provide both flexibility for decoupling structural systems from ground motion, and damping capability to reduce displacement at the isolation interface and the transmission of energy from the ground into the structure at the isolation frequency.
