Abstract: This study is an attempt to evaluate the effects of blast induced vibrations and seismic ground vibrations on reinforced concrete structure equipped with X-plate dampers and also to study the response of structure against blast and seismic vibration which can be reduced by employing protective systems such as dampers. Moment-resisting RC frame buildings were analysed to evaluate the structural responses under dynamic excitations. Non-linear Time-history analysis has been conducted on reinforced concrete structures. The ground accelerations were analytically determined and model was created in SAP2000.
