Technical Name Dual-Core Self-Centering Energy Dissipation Brace
Project Operator National Taiwan University
Project Host 周中哲
Summary Conventional building frames use beambrace members to dissipate seismic energy. However, these members may cause residual deformation of buildings after earthquakes, which affects the building performanceincreases the difficulty of repair. In order to improve the seismic performancereduce the residual deformation of buildings in earthquakes, a novel member \"Dual-Core Self-Center
Technical Film
Scientific Breakthrough A novel DC-SCB has three steel memberstwo tensioning element sets in parallel. For example, the left end of the cross-anchored DC-SCB is an extension of the first core,a tensile force is applied to the right end of the plates extending from the outer box. When the initial PT forcethe force required to activate the friction device are surpassed, the outer boxthe first core begin
Industrial Applicability The dual-core self-centering brace has been patented in United States, Japan, ChinaTaiwan. Ten research papers have been published in several well-known international journals so researchers have cited the work frequently,. Recently, the Carleton University in Canada, Harbin Institute of Technology, Beijing Jiaotong University, Nanjing Southeast University in ChinaMejio University in Jap
