CME-C6Project title: "Base Isolators: Performance Testing". 
Principal investigator:  V. Shustov.
      The main purpose of the research is a further improvement of the seismic isolation technology capacity to perform. The study  is focused on
  ·  developing effective and budgetary technique to verify performance of base isolation devices, 
  ·  experimental validation of a new performance testing procedure called Modal Performance Factor Testing Procedure on a promising hardware called Consumable Shock Evader.
       Consumable Shock Evader may be classified as an automatic passive control device with a non-destructive softening ability of low friction sliding bearings of a special design. Analytical and numerical validation of the hardware similar to the proposed for testing has been performed earlier and proved its significant potential technical merits.
