Title

Experimental Characterization of Piezoelectric Friction Dampers

Abstract

A piezoelectric friction damper was designed and fabricated to control the 1/4-scale, three-story frame structure in the Structures Laboratory at the University of Missouri-Rolla. In this paper, the damper is characterized in terms of energy dissipation, frequency and temperature dependence, and long-term durability under harmonic loading.
