19. SEISMIC DAMAGE CONTROL WITH PASSIVE ENERGY DEVICES: A CASE STUDY

This paper presents a theoretical case study of the effectiveness of supplemental passive damping to reduce structural response to seismic excitation. A six story special moment resistant reinforced concrete frame is studied with and without the aid of supplemental dampers. Response predictions are presented for each case. Fluid dampers proved to be a very cost effective way to significantly reduce the seismic response of the building investigated. Preliminary cost estimates indicate that positive damage control can be economically achieved.
