Introduction

Over the last three decades, structural control has achieved significant progress. Structural control includes three categories: passive, active, and semi-active. Among them, passive control systems are less expensive and have the advantage of not requiring an external source of power. The passive control systems consist basically on installing energy-dissipating devices (dampers) in the main structure, in order to increase its energy dissipation capacity and to prevent or limit the damage in the main structure (plastic deformations) in case of severe earthquakes. The use of seismic energy-dissipative devices for passive control is increasing exponentially in recent years for both new and existing buildings (Martelli 2006新皇冠体育app). The challenge now is to produce low-cost and effective dampers feasible for massive use in developing countries.

Several mechanisms have...
