Buckling Restrained Braces (BRB / UBB / SUB)
Buckling- restrained braces also know as BRB / UBB / SUB, they are seismic devices consisting of a primarily axially yielding core and an axially restraining mechanism, which suppresses overall buckling.
ACTS-SDT offers Fluid Viscous Damper (FVD), leads by international seismic expert Prof. Tony Yang, will simply and efficiently raise structural damping 20%~25% versus 1%~3% for a typical un-damped design. Our goal is to meet all technical performance applications outlined by the Structural Specification and provide a damper design with long service life.
BRB can also serve as a cost-effective alternative to traditional steel systems.
BRB / UBB / SUB, its principle technogies are made from encasing a steel core in to a steel tube, and confined with infill concrete to enhance its overall seismic performance, have been widely adopted as seismic devices worldwide.
The company is seeing the need for more economical solutions providing adequate resistance for new structures. With those needs in mind, we are ensuring that both new construction projects and retrofitting of existing buildings are designed and constructed to protect buildings with any seismic risk.
We do have many other types of dampers products available.
