Analysis of G+42 R.C.C Structure Using Viscoelastic Damper
Javed Shaikh,  Girish Joshi
This paper describes the seismic and wind analysis of an R.C.C high rise structure with added viscoelastic dampers. It shows the results of the seismic and wind response of an R.C.C (G+42) storey structure with and without the use of viscoelastic dampers. When passive energy dissipating devices such as viscoelastic damper is provided to the structure, the seismic forces such as absolute displacement, absolute acceleration, storey drifts are considerably reduced. It also shows the comparison of viscoelastic damper with different stiffness and damping coefficient values. Analysis is carried out using ETABS.
Keywords- Viscoelastic damper, damping, high rise structure, energy dissipating device, storey displacement.
