On-Demand: Analysis of Structures with Base Isolators Using GT STRUDL

Recorded Date: March 26, 2020

Sometimes structures need to be designed to sustain extraordinary forces due to wind and seismic activity. Some older structures were not built to handle these loads based on the newer building design codes.

One of the techniques to make sure a structure can withstand these loads is to use base isolation which is basically separating the structure from the base which could be a concrete foundation or a substructure. This type of design requires modern robust tools like GT STRUDL to perform analysis using base isolators as the support condition.

This presentation will focus on how engineers can utilize GT STRUDL to do a proper analysis of structures with base isolators.
