Widely used in civil, mechanical and automotive engineer­ing
since the early 1980s, multilayer rubber bearings have been used as
seismic isolation devices for buildings in highly seismic areas in
many countries. Their appeal in these applications comes from their
ability to provide a component with high stiffness in one direction
with high flexibility in one or more orthogonal directions. This
combination of vertical stiffness with horizontal flexibility,
achieved by reinforcing the rubber by thin steel shims
perpendicular to the vertical load, enables them to be used as
seismic and vibra­tion isolators for machinery, buildings and
bridges.

Mechanics of Rubber Bearings for Seismic and Vibration
Isolation
collates the most important information on the
mechanics of multilayer rubber bearings. It explores a unique and
comprehensive combination of relevant topics, covering all
prerequisite fundamental theory and providing a number of
closed-form solutions to various boundary value problems as well as
a comprehensive historical overview on the use of isolation.


Many of the results presented in the book are new and are
essential for a proper understanding of the behavior of these
bearings and for the design and analysis of vibration or seismic
isolation systems. The advantages afforded by adopting these
natural rubber systems is clearly explained to designers and users
of this technology, bringing into focus the design and
specification of bearings for buildings, bridges and industrial
structures.


This comprehensive book:



  • includes state of the art, as yet unpublished research along
    with all required fundamental concepts;

  • is authored by world-leading experts with over 40 years of
    combined experience on seismic isolation and the behavior of
    multilayer rubber bearings;

  • is accompanied by a website at www.wiley.com/go/kelly


The concise approach of Mechanics of Rubber Bearings
for Seismic and Vibration Isolation forms an invaluable
resource for graduate students and researchers/practitioners in
structural and mechanical engineering departments, in particular
those working in seismic and vibration isolation.
