Base isolation technology is a popular and powerful isolation technology. This technique can greatly reduce the seismic response of the structure, so as to reduce the damage to the structure. Base isolation method decouples the superstructure from the base by installing a flexible layer under each column to reduce dynamic response in the earthquake and elongate the time period of structures due to its inherent flexibility. However, the long time period causes large displacement. In addition, base isolation devices are highly vulnerable due to uplift forces produced by lateral force resisting systems (LFRS). In this study, an adjustable structure with a new configuration, namely double skin semi-base-isolated (SBI) structure is presented to solve the above problems. The LFRS is omitted in the proposed SBI structure and the time period and displacement are reduced compared to the conventional base-isolated structure. The forcedeformation behavior of an isolator is modeled as bi-linear hysteretic behavior which can be effectively used to model all isolation system in practice. This study investigates the seismic performance of 10-story double skin SBI reinforced concrete (RC) structure under far-fault earthquake ground motion by numerical method. Results demonstrate that the SBI system is significantly adjustable with the use of RC coupling beams between the inner core and outer frames. By increasing or reducing the number of connected floors in the SBI system, dynamic behaviors of the SBI system can be changed. The adjusted structure can be created by adding and removing RC coupling beams at every arbitrary floor level.
