Seminar on Seismic Isolation Technologies for Hospitals

Yusuf Zahit Gundogdu, President of Miyamoto International Turkey, became a speaker at the seminar “Seismic Isolation Technologies for Hospitals”. The seminar that was held by FIP Industriale on September 12, 2018 in Ankara hosted various experts. Gundogdu’s speech on “Damper Requirement for Base Isolated Structures” informed participants on various types of dampers. He explained the benefits of using dampers in base-isolated hospital buildings to reduce floor accelerations. The benefits of using dampers for tall, base-isolated buildings (such as strengthening the structure against far-field effect and reducing floor accelerations) were demonstrated by their existing applications in Japan.
