In this paper, we report on the seismic response of an elevator-type High-Ri.se Mechanical Parking System (MPS) to be installed inside a high-rise building. First we show the analysis model that considers structural features because the MPS structure is supported by the building, and cannot stand alone. In addition to its beam-column joints, it has a pin structure, and the rigid floor assumption could not be satisfied. Secondly, we describe the results based on the coupled analysis of the high-rise buildings with MPS. and focused on the response of the palette upon which the vehicle rests.
