Behavior and fatigue properties of metallic dampers for seismic retrofit of highway bridges
"The objective of this study was to develop an economical solution for the seismic retrofit of existing highway bridges in low occurrence seismic zones, such as in the Central and Eastern United States. To achieve this objective, metallic dampers were introduced to protect bridge structures from being damaged by dissipating a significant portion of the seismic energy that is traditionally stored in structural members in the form of strain energy"--Abstract, leaf iii.
