The Significance of the Use of Viscoelastic Dampers in the Seismic Retrofitting
PhD student in earthquake, Tajikistan Academy of Sciences
Abstract: Using the viscoelastic dampers has been considered as one of the seismic retrofitting techniques of the available structures as well as the seismic design of new buildings, for the past two decades. The studies done all indicate that these dampers are effective in reducing the structural response as well as reducing damages to the structures due to the earthquake. In this article, the effect of these dampers on the response of structures and other seismic needs created in them were studied by performing field tests on the steel structure models.
