Performance of RC Structures Equipped with Steel and Aluminium X-Plate Dampers

What is it about?

In this work, an effort has been made to use the X-plate metallic damper made of steel and aluminium for seismic response control.

Why is it important?

The existence of damper in the structure reduces the seismic response of the structure. There is a significant reduction in maximum lateral displacement and maximum drift in the building due to presence of dampers in the building. Also there is a significant reduction in maximum bending moment, maximum shear force and base shear in the building due to presence of dampers in the building. The energy dissipated by the damper is dependent on the external seismic energy impart to the structure i.e. input ground motion data.

It is important to find out the optimal damper location format in the building to improve its efficiency and reduce total cost of dampers to accomplish the maximum reduction in the response of the building.
