Paper Title:
Real-Time Hybrid Simulation of a Steel MRF with Large Scale Passive Magneto-Rheological Fluid Dampers under Selected Ground Motions
  Abstract

Experimental evaluation of large scale MR fluid dampers for seismic hazard mitigation in buildings is presented in this paper. A simplified design procedure is applied to design a two-story, four-bay steel moment resisting frame (MRF) prototype structure with MR fluid dampers in passive mode. Real-time hybrid simulations are conducted to experimentally evaluate the performance of the MRF. The simulation results show that the simplified design procedure enables an efficient design to be achieved for an MRF with MR fluid dampers in passive-on mode.
