The Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (Japan) has been carrying out the Demonstration Test and Research Program of the Seismic Isolation System for the Fast Breeder Reactor (FBR) under contract with the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (FY1987-FY1993). In this research program, development of the seismic isolation element, reliability evaluation of the seismic isolation system, and examination of a design-based earthquake have been conducted in order to develop and propose design guidelines of seismic isolation system for FBR plant. The purpose of this paper is to describe the test results concerned with structural design of the laminated rubber bearing, and to explain the construction of the design method for the laminated rubber bearing, which is one of the most important factors in the design guidelines of the seismic isolation system.
