STRUCTURE Magazine: “Seismic Isolation – The Gold Standard of Seismic Protection”

“Seismic Isolation – The Gold Standard of Seismic Protection,” from Forell/Elsesser’s Mason Walters, was published in the July 2015 Structure Magazine.

In STRUCTURE Magazine, Mason discusses the realities of seismic isolation and, more specifically, performance-based seismic design which started to develop in the early 1990s. “By definition, isolating a building from seismic shaking is the most effective way to protect not only a building, but its occupants, contents, and its function.”
