A base isolation seismic retrofit solution for a reinforced concrete school building, designed with earlier Technical Standards, is presented in this paper. The structural characteristics of the building are initially discussed. The mechanical parameters and installation details of the isolation system, incorporating double friction pendulum sliding bearings as protective devices, are then illustrated. The results of the performance assessment analyses carried out in original and rehabilitated… Expand
