Metallic Damper (MD)
Metallic dampers are usually made from steel. They are designed to deform so much when the building vibrates during an earthquake that they cannot return to their original shape.
Metallic dampers are well-known passive energy dissipation device. The structural response can be reduced when subjected to wind and earthquake by mounting metallic damper into the buildings, thereby reduces energy-dissipating demand on primary structural members and minimizes possible structural damage. Its effectiveness and low cost are now well recognized and extensively tested in the past in civil engineering.
BRANT HYDRAULICS metallic dampers are great for new build RC/SRC steel structural construction engineering, has been widely applied in construction engineering in recent years. The application of the metallic dampers has shown in structural’s anti-seismic ability and reduced the cost of construction compared with traditional design of structure.
