Abstract: Earthquakes does not take lives of the people in particular, but the building takes the lives of the people. So we have to look over how to mitigate the damage to buildings,so that no harm should be experienced by the inhabitants. At present scenario Structural Dynamics is one of the most important subjects in civil engineering discipline because of rapid advancement in science and technology. Many of the structural Engineersare researching how to predict the earthquakes and how to mitigate the damage caused by earthquakes for engineering structures. But we are unable to mitigate it completely. However we can control the severity of earthquakes to limited by using energy dissipating systems. Some of the earthquake energy dissipating systems widely implemented and accepted seismic protection systems are base isolation system and tuned mass damper systems. The aim of base isolation is to decrease the response of the structures in earthquake prone areas. The theme of this project is toreduce the structural response of building by base isolator which are subjected to earthquake groundmotion by using array programming languages (MATLAB and SCILAB) in Graphical User Interface (GUI). At present many disciplines of engineering using these languages for computing complex problems within limited time for aaccurate results.
Keywords: Energy Dissipating Devices, Base Isolation System, Array Programming Languages, Graphical User Interface (GUI), MATLAB, And SCILAB.
