Seismic protection ISAAC-AMD.
ISAAC-AMD is a smart active device for the seismic protection of existing buildings, consisting mainly of an inertial mass moved by hydraulic mechanisms. By discharging forces on the top floor of the structure, it counteracts the movement of the building by reducing its amplitude of oscillation thanks to the remarkable damping increase.
RESULTS: The tests carried out on the ISAAC-AMD scaled prototype, thanks to the use of a shaking table, recorded a reduction of the oscillation amplitudes between the base and the roof up to 8 times. It was therefore proved that the damages to the structure, in case of an earthquake, were significantly reduced thanks to the use of the ISAAC-AMD device
HARDWARE: the seismic protection system is constituted by the ISAAC-AMD device (number of devices varies according to the structure typology) and sensors installed outside the building.
INSTALLATION: non-invasive installation on the top floor of the building or in the attic.
