Viscous Damper | Structural Damping - Jarret work in tension and compression. The dampers can reduce longitudinal and transverse or vertical displacement of a deck. They can be installed, for example, longitudinally between the deck and the abutment, or in transverse between the deck and the pier structure.
Dampers can be installed at different locations in a building for brace isolation or base isolation systems.
Seismic energy is dissipated in the damper unit instead of being dissipated in the concrete or steel structure. JARRET can accommodate transverse and longitudinal seismic displacement, and at the same time allow longitudinal displacement such as creep shrinkage and thermal expansion or contraction of the structure.
