Simulations Study Helping With Earthquake Dampers For Structures
2013-07-31 08:47:43

Purdue University Researchers have demonstrated the reliability and efficiency of "real-time hybrid simulation" for testing a type of powerful damping system that might be installed in buildings and bridges to reduce structural damage and injuries during earthquakes. The magnetorheological-fluid dampers are shock-absorbing devices containing a liquid that becomes far more viscous when a magnetic field is applied. "It normally feels like a thick fluid, but when you apply a magnetic...
