Paper Title:
SMA in Mitigation of Extreme Loads in Civil Engineering: Study of their Application in a Realistic Steel Portico
  Abstract

Guaranteeing the use of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) in mitigation of extreme load effects requires a deep study of the SMA behavior according to the specific requirements of the applications in damping. The damper was defined according the expected requirements (length of SMA and number of SMA wires). It is applied to two types of alloys (CuAlBe and NiTi) in the diagonals of a realistic steel portico (2.47 m x 4.10 m). The measurements establish that the used SMA reduces the oscillation amplitude to a less than a half.
