equipment anchorage in isolated structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sometimes equipment will have isolation springs at the anchor or within the frame. If the equipment natural period is increased it may match a possible higher period of an isolated foundation, increasing equipment accelerations.

A similar problem can occur for foundation isolation systems over deep soft soils.
