Design and performance of autonomous chevron-brace systems with elastomeric-dampers for steel frames
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

Highlights•In this study, elastomeric dampers are used as an autonomous seismic force resisting system (SFRS) for steel frames.•No other SFRS are provided than the dampers in series with chevron bracings, as opposite to usual applications.•The system is shown to be efficient and cost-effective with numerical studies and a practical design procedure is proposed.•Experimental devices are tested in real assembly conditions that show the efficiency and the reliability of the SFRS.•The study is a rare application of fiber-reinforced natural rubber in earthquake engineering.
