Abstract

In the frame of the SPIDER (Strands Pre-stressing for Internal Damping of Earthquake Response) project a new system for the protection of buildings against the earthquake is studied. The project studies the application of pre-stressed cables in series with tension spring dampers: damper cable system (DCS). The cable is fixed at one of the ends to the basement of the building and, at the other end, to the upper part of the building. The shock absorber, coupled in series with the cable, is located dose to the basement for easy installation and maintenance. The cable is connected with a special device at each of the floor. This device allows the cable to slip inside and move with respect to the structure. . In this report the experimental results obtained during the test carried out at Enel.Hydro on a mock-up of a building equipped with four DCS's are analysed and compared with the results obtained with numerical analyses performed with ABAQUS code.
