In this paper, the shock-absorbing and energy-consuming mechanism, stiffness and directivity of lead-rubber bearings under repeated low-frequency loads are studied through the test of lead-rubber bearings with different parameters. It is shown that, lead-rubber bearings have good and stable energy-absorbing and energy-consuming characteristics, the change of transverse loading direction has no influence on the hysteresis characteristics of lead-rubber bearings; the energy-absorbing and energy… CONTINUE READING
