We carried out fundamental seismic response analysis that considers both horizontal and vertical nonlinearity of rubber bearing. In this study, the horizontal nonlinearity was considered independently from vertical response in order to construct accurate nonlinear analytical model of rubber bearing. That is to say, the coupling effect was not considered. Both horizontal and vertical nonlinear characteristics of rubber bearing were explained by multi-linear model. Analytical model of building for horizontal direction consists of 3 mass points that is the isolation layer, lower and upper layer of the building. It for vertical direction consists of 4 mass points, that is ground layer, the isolation layer, lower and upper layer of the building. At first, nonlinear seismic response analysis was executed in order to confirm nonlinear characteristics of analytical model of rubber bearing. Influence of nonlinearity of rubber bearing upon response of building was also investigated by the analysis. After that, sensitivity analysis was executed. Parameters of rubber bearing, oil damper and building were fluctuated, and influence of variation of these parameters upon response of building was investigated.
