Abstract

Passive energy dissipation systems were developed in the United Stated either specifically for civil engineering applications or they evolved from devices and materials used in industrial, automotive, military and aerospace applications. Yielding steel and frictional devices were specifically developed for structural applications, whereas viscoelastic dampers and fluid viscous devices were developed for other applications and adapted for structural applications.
