Paper Title:
Research on a New Type of Energy Dissipation Brace
  Abstract

This paper presents one new configuration called little-character-toggle-brace. This paper analyses the effect of different toggle-brace position in the story and different angle of the toggle-brace to the magnification factor and provides the damping radio of the structure. Based on vibration control test of the structure with energy dissipation devices, the dynamic behavior and dynamic response of the structure with little-character brace, diagonal brace or little-character- toggle-brace have been investigated. The different control effects of the structure with the different energy dissipation braces have been studied. The result demonstrates that the little-character-toggle- brace is the best energy dissipation brace.
