Abstract: Earthquakes are uncontrollable natural disasters that cannot be predicted in time. Turkey, located in a region of high seismicity. Seismic isolation is an earthquake resistant structure design approach based on the principle of increasing the resistance of the structure against earthquakes or reducing the seismic forces transferred from the ground to the structure. In this study, an exemplary health center RC building system, carriage elements are dimensioned according to TS-500 (Turkey Concrete Structures Design and Construction Rules) and TBDY-2018 (Turkey Building Earthquake Regulation). 3 models were created for the same building according to three different types of support (with friction pendulum isolation system, lead core rubber bearing isolation system, fixed base dual system) .The most important aim of this study is to find out which of the seismic isolator type is more effective than fixed base dual systems. These models were analyzed nonlinear (FNA) in time domain in SAP2000 program. When compared with seismic isolator bearing systems and fixed base dual systems; the internal forces, the relative drift ratio(%) of the floor and the acceleration of the floor were decreased, but the natural vibration period was increased. The system with friction pendulum isolator has better earthquake behavior than the system with lead core rubber.
