56. BUILDINGS: DESIGN FOR DAMPING

The end of the Cold War in 1990 heralded a restructuring period for the American military and defense industry. In the civil engineering field, high capacity fluid dampers have transitioned from defense related structures to commercial applications on buildings and bridges subjected to seismic and/or wind storm inputs. Because fluid damping technology was proven thoroughly reliable and robust through decades of Cold War usage, implementation on commercial structures has taken place very quickly. This paper provides a broad overview as well as a guide to implementation; with specific case studies for four of the more than 300 major buildings and bridges equipped with fluid dampers by Taylor Devices, Inc., a defense contractor from the Cold War years.
