Performance of Viscoelastic Structural Dampers for the Columbia Center Building
Vibratory motion of structures such as buildings, bridges, and floors can be reduced by the use of viscoelastic (V. E. ) dampers. Such dampers transfer part of the vibratory energy of...

Taming Lively Buildings
Mechanical damping systems are increasingly being used for controlling dynamic responses of tall buildings. Several types of dampers are described, and compared, beginning with the three...

Seismic Interaction Among Numerous Masses Founded on a Viscoelastic Stratum
The steady-state harmonic response of systems comprising numerous masses resting on a homogeneous, viscoelastic stratum with hysteretic damping is studied. The stratum, bearing on a rigid...

Building Motion in Wind
The trend towards higher structural efficiency and hence lower cost has resulted in a generation of lighter and more flexible buildings with a lower inherent capacity for energy dissipation...
