Title: MULTIPLE-FRICTION DISSIPATING DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a multiple-friction device for dissipating energy, which can be used to control the dynamic response in terms of displacements and accelerations, and which comprises at least one column surrounded by a set of multiple-friction members which are in contact with same and are secured together by means of securing pins. The device further comprises at least one axial load adjuster mounted on a plurality of compression springs, the adjuster being secured by means of high-strength screws. The device does not have the disadvantages of the implementation of traditional friction dissipators, and can be used in both new and renovated structures.
