1 - Introduction
can be installed in the structural
frame of a building to absorb some of the energy going
into the building from the shaking ground during an earthquake.
The dampers reduce the energy available for shaking the building.
This means that the building deforms
less, so the chance of damage is reduced.
There are many types of dampers that can be installed in
buildings. Here are some of them:
Adding Dampers 2 - Metallic
Adding Dampers 3 - Friction
Adding Dampers 4 - Viscous
