Use of real-time hybrid simulation to evaluate the performance-based seismic design of steel MRFs with compressed elastomer dampers

Use of real-time hybrid simulation to evaluate the performance-based seismic design of steel MRFs with compressed elastomer dampers
This paper presents an experimental program using real-time hybrid simulation to verify the performance-based seismic design of a two story, four-bay
steel moment resisting frame (MRF) building with compressed elastomer dampers.
The laboratory specimens, referred to as experimental substructures, are two
individual compressed elastomer dampers, while the remaining part of the building is
modeled as an analytical substructure. The proposed experimental technique enables
an ensemble of ground motions to be applied to the building, resulting in various
levels of damage, without the need to repair the experimental substructures since the
damage is within the analytical substructure. Statistical experimental response results
incorporating the ground motion variability show that an MRF with compressed
elastomer dampers can be designed to perform better than a conventional steel special
moment resisting frame (SMRF), even when the MRF with dampers is significantly
lighter in weight than the conventional SMRF.

Abstract

This paper presents an experimental program using real-time hybrid simulation to verify the performance-based seismic design of a two story, four-bay
steel moment resisting frame (MRF) building with compressed elastomer dampers.
The laboratory specimens, referred to as experimental substructures, are two
individual compressed elastomer dampers, while the remaining part of the building is
modeled as an analytical substructure. The proposed experimental technique enables
an ensemble of ground motions to be applied to the building, resulting in various
levels of damage, without the need to repair the experimental substructures since the
damage is within the analytical substructure. Statistical experimental response results
incorporating the ground motion variability show that an MRF with compressed
elastomer dampers can be designed to perform better than a conventional steel special
moment resisting frame (SMRF), even when the MRF with dampers is significantly
lighter in weight than the conventional SMRF.
