Analytical Investigation of the Structural Fuse Concept
Passive energy devices (PED) are useful to enhance structural performance by reducing seismically induced structural damage. Metallic dampers are one such PED. When they are designed such that all damage is concentrated ...
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 ...
