Earthquake, seismic devices


A number of imaginative approaches for improving earthquake response performance and damage control of buildings, bridges and other structures have been developed and other will be forthcoming in future. These can be divided into three groups: Passive systems such as base isolation and supplemental energy devices; Active systems which requires the active participation of mechanical devices and Hybrid Systems which combines the Passive systems and active systems in manner. So the safety of the system is not compromised even if the active system fails. Energy dissipation has long been recognized as an effective means of controlling excessive vibration of mechanical and structural systems under dynamic loads.
