Characterization of Multi-Phase Performance-Based Passive Control Systems
Typical passive control devices have inherent strengths and weaknesses as seismic protection systems. A Multi-phase Passive Control System (MPCS) combines two types of passive control devices in a system in order to offset ...
Development, Experimentation, and Implementation of a Gap Damper System to Limit Displacements in Extreme Ground Motions
Studies have shown the effectiveness of providing supplemental energy dissipation in base-isolated structures to reduce displacements at the isolation level, often with consequences to superstructure performance. A previous ...
