Abstract
An important percentage of Colombian population is located in medium-to-high seismicity zones (NSR-10, 2010). Therefore, it is important to protect the buildings, principally the highly crowded ones, and those that are considered as indispensables for community attention after an earthquake event. One most successful techniques for structural protection is base (seismic) isolation; despite their obvious advantages, in Latin America (and, more specifically, in Colombia), its use is still only lim...
