Seismic Response of Single-Degree-of-Freedom (SDOF) Structural Fuse Systems
Passive energy dissipation (PED) devices have been implemented to enhance structural performance by reducing seismically induced structural damage. In this paper metallic dampers are defined to be structural fuses (SF) ...
Seismic Design of Multi-story Buildings with Metallic Structural Fuses
Seismic design relies on inelastic deformations through hysteretic behavior. However, this translates into damage on structural elements, permanent system deformations following an earthquake, and possibly high cost for ...
