STRUCTURAL DAMPING Applications in Seismic Response Modification by Liang, Zach

The major goal of earthquake engineering is to limit seismic-induced structural damages at reasonable cost. To achieve this goal, one of the most effective approaches to reduce structural response is to utilize supplemental dampers, provided such a damping system is properly designed. In this sense, understanding structural damping is critically important for successful seismic design. This book Structural Damping: Applications in Seismic Response Modification is a valuable addition to the Advances in Earthquake Engineering Series for it serves the goal of optimal response control. The book was written under the direction of Dr. George C. Lee, SUNY distinguished professor, who had served as chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and director of the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research. He and his coauthors have integrated the essential materials developed by his research team in the past 20 years.
