Abstract

In a collaborative effort between NEES TIPS, NIED in Japan, and the NEES Nonstructural Grand Challenge project, a 5-story steel moment frame building will be shaken at the E-Defense facility in Japan. The specimen will be shaken both with and without triple friction pendulum isolators. Nonstructural components including interior walls, ceilings, piping, and concrete cladding panels will be constructed and in the specimen. The isolated specimen will be shaken to a suite of motions representing frequent, design/L2, and MCE/L3 level motions. The tests represent the grandest showcase of the benefit of seismic isolation technology to date, and the primary objective of the tests is to demonstrate that damage free performance can be targeted and achieved against an MCE/L3 earthquake. Limit state tests will illustrate the performance when the demands exceed the displacement capacity of the bearings. The tests will take place over a 3-week time frame in August 2011, with 4 days of shaking anticipated.
