42. FLUID DAMPERS FOR APPLICATIONS OF SEISMIC ENERGY DISSIPATION AND SEISMIC ISOLATION

University at Buffalo has conducted extensive evaluation of fluid viscous dampers including development of an analytical model of the damper, computational model of structures including dampers and a number of experimental verifications. This paper describes this program, alone with a history of viscous dampers and a description of some projects that use them.

3. Commentary on Corrosion

This document shows designers how to avoid corrosion due to the interaction of different metals and alloys at bimetallic contacts. Section one describes the conditions that lead to corrosion at bimetallic contacts and methods to alleviate it. The tables in Section two show the degree of corrosion likely to occur at bimetallic contacts exposed to atmosphere and water.
