Development and Experimental Study of Semi-Active Fluid Damping Devices for Seismic Protection of Structures
This report describes the development and testing of semi-active fluid damping devices for the control of structures subjected to seismic excitation. The semi-active dampers operate on the principle of fluid orificing and ...
Experimental & Analytical Investigation of Seismic Retrofit of Structures with Supplemental Damping, Part 1: Fluid Viscous Damping Devices
An experimental investigation of different damping devices was carried out to allow for physical or mathematical modeling of their behavior. A series of shaking table tests of a 1:3 scale reinforced concrete frame incorporating ...
