Experiment-3: Full Scale 5-story Building with Triple Pendulum Bearings at E-Defense
Experiment Type: Shake Table
Description: In this experiment, shake table tests were performed on a 5-story full scale steel moment frame building isolated with triple pendulum bearings. The isolation system consisted of 9 bearings, one beneath each column of the building. 21 trials were performed over 3 days with a wide variety of 2D and 3D motions, including some of the largest recorded near-fault motions.
