In this paper the earthquake response behavior of single layer latticed cylindrical shell roofs constituted with steel members has been numerically analyzed. Also, the applicability of mid-story seismic isolation system has been discussed. The input waves are of the artificial earthquake waves having the various phase characteristics and target spectra. The various response quantities and the effects of seismic isolation have been investigated in detail. Furthermore, a concept of application method for seismic-isolated single layer latticed cylindrical shell structures has also been suggested.
