Seismic Performance of Reinforced Cement Concrete Structures with and Without Viscous Dampers




Passive energy dissipation have been used so far to dissipate the unwanted energy due to earthquake and heavy wind actions. The complete failure of the structures that has occurred in the past due to catastrophic earthquakes may be avoided with the use of such devices. The study is concerned with the use of accordion metallic dampers that uses hysteretic energy to dissipate the unwanted energy due to earthquake. It consists of corrugated thin wall tubes installed as a brace connection in the frame. The axial deformation of the accordion damper enhances the lateral buckling capacity and results in maximum reduction of the damaging measures. The study emphasizes the use of such dampers and in depth analysis is performed by subjecting the building to base excitations in order to assess the nonlinear performance of the dampers installed in the building
