Abstract

Buildings with passive dampers have become favored in response to the structural damage caused the 1995 Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake, and the outbreak of numerous design and construction malpractice scandals. However, the real performance of these buildings had not been well understood. The need for more advanced methods for understanding dynamic performance of civil engineering structures has thus become apparent. This study focuses our attention on the dynamic properties represented by modal parameters of a building, a medium-height office building with passive dampers. The passive dampers are sensitive to environments such as the aging, changes in temperature, and the earthquake excitation. We examine such effects by evaluating modal parameters. The MIMO (multi-input and multi-output) subspace identification method was used in this study for estimating modal parameters.
