Placement of fluid viscous dampers to reduce total-building seismic damage

Abstract:

Nonstructural damage has been found to critically influence economic losses and building downtime following earthquakes. Attaining a target level of seismic performance mandates the harmonisation of structural and nonstructural performance. Retrofitting buildings with fluid viscous dampers (FVDs) can improve interstorey drifts and floor accelerations, parameters which characterise seismic demands. The distribution of dampers within a building and the amount of supplemental damping are critica...
