Experimental and Analytical Studies of Structures Seismically Isolated with an Uplift-Restraint Isolation System
by Panayiotis C. Roussis and Michael C. Constantinou
This report describes the development of a novel uplift-prevention Friction Pendulum isolator called the XY-FP. A large body of additional information, which is not included in the printed report, is available from this site. The appendices are provided below in PDF format.
