UBC Smart Structures Research Group recently developed different solutions for testing structural components and structures. Current infrastructure can support element level experiments under monotonic, cyclic and hybrid protocols for axial and shear demands. System level experiments can be done with the uni-directional shake-table developed in UBC Structures Laboratory. UBC Smart Structures Research Group is also part […]

In this study, the force-deformation relationship of the WWFF is investigated through experiment and numerical modelling. The effects of size, slenderness and aspect ratios of the WWFF was examined. Overall, the experimental results show that the newly proposed WWFF is a cost effective, reliable and efficient metallic damper.
