Seisimic Analysis Of A High Rise Building With Viscous Dampers Using Etabs

Kadiyala Lakshman Kumar, M Mujahid Ahmed


For a decade, many strong earthquakes have occurred one after another in many countries. These earthquakes have caused severe damages to large-scale infrastructures. To protect structures from significant damage and response reduction of structures under such severe earthquakes has become an important topic in structural engineering. Conventionally, structures are designed to resist dynamic forces through a combination of strength, deformability and energy absorption. These structures may deform well beyond the elastic limit, for example, in a severe earthquake. It indicates that structures designed with these methods are sometimes vulnerable to strong earthquake motions. In order to avoid such critical damages, structural engineers are working to figure out different types of structural systems that are robust and can withstand strong motions.
