Structures Learning Module : Test Your Mettle

Published on

Abstract

Test your Mettle

 

Activity 2:

In this activity we will see how the damping ratio of base isolators relates to the maximum displacement of the structure.

In the tool vary the damping ratio of the isolators from 0.1 to 0.7

>What is the relationship between damping ratio and displacement?
What value of damping ratio works best for this type of structure? Why?
