Control of structures is the acts done for enhance the safety and performance of a structure. This may conclude using of braces, shear walls, moment connected beams, base isolation, dampers and etc. Control of structures is divided into four major category by the performance of control system:

  1. Passive control.
  2. Active control.
  3. Semi-active control.
  4. Hybrid control

TADAS dampers, friction dampers and viscous dampers are passive energy dissipation systems that Part Saze Co. uses for the passive control of structures.

TADAS dampers are a new emerging passive earthquake energy dissipation system that have numerous advantages for different types of structures. TADAS dampers can use in low to high rise structures with different types of lateral load resisting system such as moment resisting frame, shear wall resisting frame, braced frame and etc. Some of the most important benefits of TADAS dampers are listed below:

  1. Enhance the safety level of structures by decreasing the damage due to earthquake in primary elements.
  2. Upgrade the performance level of structures by reducing the absolute acceleration and inter story drift of stories.
  3. Relieve the time and the cost of repairs after an earthquake due to less damage occurrence in primary elements at a structure equipped with TADAS dampers.
  4. Decrease the total cost of construction. According to building codes such as ASCE, EC and etc. and noting the dissipating nature of dampers one can reduce the design lateral load. This reduction leads to smaller section for most of structural primary elements and this means lower cost for construction.
  5. Decrease the size of primary elements section of structure due to reduction in design lateral load. This is a very important option that TADAS damper brings to a structure. By reducing the size of beam and column sections the total height of structure is reduced and net area in floors is increased respectively.

TADAS damper is manufactured by Part Saze Co. during an exact and sensitive procedure and using high accuracy devices. Part Saze TADAS dampers are tested in BHRC – Building and House Research Center - and passed all of the related codes regulations.

Finally TADAS damper is an ideal and economical option for earthquake energy dissipation in most structures.
