Abstract

Content The Acropolis Museum in Athens is a fi ne example of a seismically isolated structure. Un- like other structural protection systems against earthquake, a seismic isolation offers the possibility that the structure stays intact during an event of earthquake. Moreover even the objects within and on the seismically isolated structure can be protected from damag- ing. These special properties of seismic isolation are especially attractive for the applica- tion to important infrastructures such as bridges, hospitals or fi re departments as well as museums because the historical priceless objects can be protected with a high safety. The earthquake protection system of the Acropolis Museum is realized by 94 friction pendu- lum bearings. In addition to protection function the bearings provide a recentering of the structure after occurrence of a seismic event (see pp. 33–41).
