Abstract

Design method of rational composite foundation capable of reducing seismic response of structures was studied. Analysis of the effects of damping materials on the reduction of seismic response of a full-scale structure was performed. Shaking experiment and seismic observation for model foundations confirming the damping effects were conducted and development of new damping material are described.
