44. FLUID VISCOUS DAMPING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO BASE ISOLATION

Base isolation of large structures has proven to be an effective way to attenuate seismic excitation. However it can be costly, and can also involve major building modification. It is now possible to attain a comparable degree of earthquake mitigation with fluid viscous dampers located throughout a structure, without having to isolate the building. This paper describes several techniques for doing this, provides analytical back-up and describes several applications of this technology.
