Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to study the seismic response of frame structure with friction dampers.

Design/methodology/approach

The state equation of the structure subjected to the earthquake is presented and solved, from which the maximum drift and the interlayer drift angle of the floors of the structure subjected to the seismic waves of four types of sites are analyzed.

Findings

The result indicates that the damping effect is significant on the floors with the friction damper but is almost little influence on the other floor.

Originality/value

The result indicates that the damping effect is significant on the floors with the friction damper but is almost little influence on the other floor.
