One way of modelling rubber base isolators in ETABS is by selecting a particular base isolator available in the market. They would list the lateral stiffness and bearing capacity of that particular isolator. You can use the properties and provide lateral springs at the base of the structure. This is one of the ways to provide base isolators.
