Inserting the mass proportional damping (MPD) system in a concrete shear-type structure
Stefano Silvestri, Tomaso Trombetti and Claudio Ceccoli

 
Abstract
    This paper presents an illustrative example of the advantages offered by inserting added viscous dampers into shear-type structures in accordance with a special scheme based upon the mass proportional damping (MPD) component of the Rayleigh viscous damping matrix. In previous works developed by the authors, it has been widely shown that, within the class of Rayleigh damped systems and under the
