passive energy dissipation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Our office has been awarded a project, and we are
considering using energy dissipation, such as dampers.
 I'd appreciate any input regarding the design
approach.  in particular, if used in a SMRF structure,
but in a chevron brace configuration, would it be
considered a dual system?  i.e. CBF resists 100% of
lateral load and SMRF resists 25%?  TIA.
