Seismic Isolation and Seismic Design

36 seismic isolation absorbers (each is one meter in diameter) are built in between the basement 1 and the first floor to ensure the Center can work under the impact of a strong quake. When a magnitude 7 strong quake hits, the horizontal acceleration of each floor shall be no greater than 300gal. The whole building can sustain a horizontal displacement of 60cm (there is a building interval of 80 cm).

Seismic Isolation Devices Description


In between the first floor and the basement, there are 36 seismic isolation absorbers, each measuring 1 meter in diameter and a building interval of 80 cm.

This building allows a horizontal displacement of 60 cm while most other building's structural construction may lean when struck by a major quake.
