Abstract: Earthquakes are major natural hazards and can cause catastrophic damage by increasing the energy within the structural system. Such unwanted energy can be dissipated by introducing the several control systems such as passive, active, hybrid and semi active control system. The present work includes one such dissipating device namely fluid viscous damper. The aim of the work is to reduce seismic response of the structure using fluid viscous damper in ETABS2016. A 10 story structure with and without fluid viscous damper was analyzed using ETABS2016 to get the seismic response with and without fluid viscous damper. Non-linear time history, which is being calculated by fast nonlinear analysis of Bhuj earthquake data is considered for the analysis.In the present paper, dampers position and optimizing their position at the height of the structure are studied. It investigates about viscous damper systems and their effects on seismic behavior of multistory structures and determines effects of damper system position on structure height.
