THE USE OF DAMPER SYSTEMS IN BUILDINGS WITH REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES
This study aims to emphasize, by means of a comparative study, the efficiency of some damper systems as modern variants of consolidation / seismic structural safety enhancement used for buildings with reinforced concrete structure designed and erected according to the P13-type standards (from 1963) and considering this as an alternative possibility instead of retrofitting with reinforced concrete jackets (with significant implications for most of the structural elements at all levels of buildings). Damper devices are elements that can be easily replaced later in case of damage. Case studies were made, based on structural calculations in the linear elastic field, using the ETABS program.
