Abstract: The base isolation design strategy uncouples the superstructure from the foundation, reducing the effects of earthquake ground motion. The structure is isolated from the ground motion by a flexible base. Installing base isolators in columns. The structural response accelerations are usually less than the ground motion acceleration. In general, base isolation reduces storey shear and acceleration while simultaneously increasing time period, and storey drift, allowing rigid buildings to

The basic seismic isolation design provides a shielding technique, allowing the structure to function without harm even after significant earthquakes. The current study explores the seismic effects of a G+6 stepped building with an LRB isolator. An isolator with a lead rubber bearing was used. E-tabs is used to conduct the base isolation study and seismic analysis. The reaction of the structure, lateral shear force, time period, and base shear, was observed. This paper presents time-history analysis and performance assessment analyses on a base isolated stepped building using Bhuj Earthquake ground motion data.
