Abstract
The major lateral load of the high structures is the earthquake load. In the high rise buildings, the structural response increases exponentially in response to earthquake load. Therefore, the damping has significant function in design of Earthquake Resistant High Structures, which can decrease the response of the structure when exposed to lateral loads. The energy produced by earthquake will be absorbed by these devices and the load acting on the main structure of the building will reduce significantly. The fluid viscous dampers are used to dissipate energy and lessen the response of reinforced concrete buildings. The main function of structure is to carry the lateral loads and transmit them well to the foundation. The lateral loads enjoined on the structures are dynamic in nature, which cause vibrations in the structure. In the current study, the responses of the structures having square plans with different cross-sections are analyzed by the software ETABS 2015 based on the consideration of Fluid Viscous Damper. The results of numerical examples show that fluid viscous damper (250) can reduce the response of the structures effectively, including the base shear of the buildings, and the structures with square columns performs perfect and have good earthquake resistant characteristics when compared to structures with rectangular columns regardless of the flooring plan.
