Seismically Isolated Unibody Residential Buildings for Enhanced Life-Cycle Performance (2014)

Although traditional framed residential structures provide a high level of life safety during an earthquake, their vulnerability to damage can be very costly. After the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, it was estimated that $20 billion were issued in insurance payouts for damaged residences. In addition, over 60,000 people were displaced from their homes for a significant period of time. In order to reduce the damage seen by these structures, the current design standards must be revised to prevent the ultimate load from being reached at large damaging drifts..
