||ADD is made up of a low-yielding metallic
material. ADD is light weight and it is relatively
||ADD provides additional stiffness to reduce
seismic responses of lateral displacement,
story drift and torsion of structures during
||ADD provides maximum energy-dissipation capacity
during the peak seismic response of the structure.
||The periods of structure can be shifted by
using the yielding of ADD to prevent the possibility
||ADD can be installed in a structure either
with the steel bracings or RC walls.
It is not interfere the ambient light and the
||ADD is composed of the pure steel. This is
keeping with the rule of 10.5.5 on the fireproofing
capability and 10.5.8 on the maintenance of
the building code in Taiwan.
||The mechanical behavior of ADD is independent
|The installation, maintenance and inspection
(DT or NDT) are easy.
