The Viscoelastic Structural Damper application can perform the time-domain and frequency-domain analyses for a typical viscoelastic damper.
The purpose of the app is to compute and analyze the important parameters of the damper such as the hysteresis loop and loss and storage moduli for a prescribed material model.
In addition, the application provides a visual comparison of the damper behavior when you use two different settings for the viscoelastic material parameters.
What is a Fluid Viscous Damper
You can change the number of viscoelastic branches and their corresponding material parameters as well as the magnitude and phase of the applied load.
The app can be used to study the damper over a range of frequencies or as time-dependent problem. This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:.
Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:.
Particular functionality may be common to several products.
Applications of Viscoelastic Dampers to High‐Rise Buildings
To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. You can fix this by pressing 'F12' on your keyboard, Selecting 'Document Mode' and choosing 'standards' or the latest version listed if standards is not an option.
