This paper described the results of static loading tests using a half-scale rubber bearing model to investigate the fundamental characteristics such as restoring force of a rubber bearing applied to a Sodium-Cooled-Fast-Reactor (SFR). Since the SFR has thin-walled structures, a seismic isolation system is employed to mitigate the seismic force. The static loading tests were performed using the half-scale rubber bearing with a diameter of 800 mm in the range which exceeds a linear limit of horizontal direction and a yield stress of vertical direction to investigate the horizontal and vertical of each stiffness and damping ratio. The fundamental characteristic of rubber bearing employed to the SFR and the validity of a design formula became clear through the static tests.
