Abstract: Structures are mainly subjected to various types of loading conditions such as dead loads, live loads and dynamic loads such as earthquake and wind loads etc. The earthquake creates vibration at the base of the structure. In modern seismic design, the damping devices are used to reduce the seismic energy and enable the control of the structural response of the structure. In the present study, the seismic behavior of a structure connected with and without Fluid Viscous Dampers (FVD) has been describes. The software ETABS 2016 is used to perform the modeling and analysis of G +10 storey building by considering seismic zone IV. For analysis IS codes have been referred. The response of the RCC building is evaluated using Push-over and Time history analyses. Fluid Viscous Dampers are suggested to the structure, to control the seismic response and increase the stiffness of the structure.
Keywords: Fluid Viscous Dampers, Push-over and Time History Analyses, Storey Displacement and Storey Shear.
