Global Seismic Isolation Systems Market: Market Driver and Restraint
Applications of Seismic Isolation Systems are anticipated to create new business segments in the market. Seismic Isolation Systems is the system used to reduce the effects of earthquake ground shaking on structure, their components and protect them from damaging. The system decouples the building or structure from the horizontal components of the ground motion by interposing structural elements with low horizontal stiffness between the structure and the foundation. This gives the structure a fundamental frequency that is much lower than both its fixed-base frequency and the predominant frequencies of the ground motion.
Global Seismic Isolation Systems Market: Key Takeaways
· Apart from protecting structures from seismic activities, base isolation also protects them from GSA blast loads as the ability to move reduces the overall impact of the blast on the structures.
· Base isolated structures are predictable, hence reliability of them is very high as compared to conventional structural components.
