Abstract: In the present paper base isolation system is analyzed and its seismic behavior is investigated using U-shaped steel dampers as an isolator by placing it at the bottom of the structure. It is the most popular way of protecting the structure using control techniques for earthquake ground motion. The dampers significantly reduced damage factors such as displacement and drift. To reduce structural response to external forces, which can be accomplished through the use of special protective systems. So to prevent these damages, seismic isolation technique can be used for newly constructed structures. The time history analysis of the time domain on this structure is conducted by using SAP2000 software.
