Seismic design and evaluation of moment resisting frames using elastomeric dampers

Abstract:

This study evaluates the characteristics of elastomeric dampers, and assesses their eectiveness in mitigating the eects of dynamic loading. As part of this evaluation a series of characterization tests were carried out in order to extract the main mechanical properties of the elastomer material in a range of strain amplitudes, loading frequencies, and ambient temperatures, since it has been proved that elastomeric materials depend on these parameters. It was found that strain amplitud...
