Experiment-1: Seismically-Isolated Christchurch Women's Hospital (NZ) Aftershock Monitoring 2011-09-14 - 2012-06-25
Experiment Type: Field
Description: The Christchurch Women's Hospital is seismically isolated with 41 lead-rubber bearings and four sliding friction bearings. The structure was instrumented in accelerometers and string pots for a ten month period, from September 2011 to June 2012, during which almost 300 seismic events triggered recordings of transient responses. Two of these events were moderately-large (M 6.0 and M 5.9) and represent some of the largest events in the 2010-2012 Canterbury Seismic Sequence.

NEES data is recorded on three recording stations.

Station 1 "CWHNZ1" = isolation level galley of Hospital Building, Granite # 307 --- channel 1 to channel 12

Station 2 "CWHNZ2" = top level of Hospital Building
Q330 # 273 --- channel 12 - chanell 18

Station 3 "CWHNZ3" = top level of Parkside West building
TSA1 --- channel 19 --- channel 21
Dates: September 18, 2011 - June 26, 2012
