Hysteretic behavior of improved Pall-typed frictional dampers

Abstract:

A new type of Pall frictional damper (PFD) with a simple configuration has been developed. The construction details, operation and damper force of the improved PFD (IPFD) are compared with those of the original PFD (OPFD). Force analyses using the virtual work principle show that the resisting forces generated by the two dampers are identical with identical frictional forces. Hence the IPFD replicates the mechanical properties of the OPFD, but offers some advantages in terms of ease of manufa...
