(2014-05-30)Destructive seismic events continue to demonstrate the importance of mitigating these hazards to building structures. Structural control has been considered one of the most effective strategies to protect buildings from ...
Targeted energy transfer using nonlinear energy sinks for the attenuation of transient loads on building structures (2014-05-30)Nonlinear energy sinks (NESs) have been proposed as a practical and robust means of passively protecting buildings structures subjected to extreme transient loads. NESs are a type of passive attachment that differentiate ...
