The author carries out parametric studies for the equation of planar vibrations of rigid structure resting on kinematical rolling supports with planar bottom (after A.M. Kurzanov). Both support and the surface below are assumed rigid; no sliding assumed. Varied parameter is the width of the bottom. Horizontal structural acceleration is studied. Three variants of the possible behavior are shown: (i) minor rocking with little decrease in response accelerations as compared to the initial excitation; considerable rocking with considerable decrease in the response accelerations; intensive rocking leading to the overturn of the supports. In vertical direction there appear shocks (infinite accelerations) during gap closings of the supports. The importance of the problem for the seismic response analysis of the unanchored items is noted. The author gives recommendations for the experimental program, aimed to obtain data about damping both for rotation and for the gap closing, and also about the impact of the flexibility of the supports and underlying surface.
