Seismic design of a precast r.c. structure equipped with viscous dampers
Stefano Silvestri, Giada Gasparini and Tomaso Trombetti

 
Abstract
    The seismic design of a two-storey precast reinforced-concrete building structure equipped with viscous dampers is presented in this paper with twofold purpose. The first goal is to verify the applicability of a practical procedure for the identification of the mechanical characteristics of the viscous dampers which allow to achieve target performance levels, originally proposed by the authors for moment-resisting building frames, also with reference to
 
Key Words
    precast r.c. structure; added viscous dampers; design procedure; seismic response.
