Evaluation of Accuracy of Simplified Methods of Analysis and Design of Buildings with Damping Systems for Near-Fault and for Soft-Soil Seismic Motions
The effect of near-field and soft-soil ground motions on structures with viscous-damping systems was examined. Damping modification factors for damping ratios up to 100% of critical were obtained for sets of near-field ...
Scissor-Jack-Damper Energy Dissipation System
This report describes an energy dissipation system configuration that extends the utility of fluid viscous damping devices to structural systems that are characterized by small interstory drifts and velocities. The geometry ...
