The papers in this exceptional issue focus on the concept of the design and analysis of structures with seismic diffusing systems, the intent becoming to provide a overview of current research actions within the standard п¬Ѓeld of seismic energy dissipation devices. The special issue began within the ASCE-SEI Task Panel on Supplemental Damping Systems for Seismic Applications, a committee providing under the ASCE-SEI Committee about Seismic Results. Two associates of the job committee, Finley A. Charney and Claire S. Whittaker, were especially helpful in developing the particular issue, helping with its early on development, as well as the soliciting manuscript reviews. Their efforts are gratefully acknowledged. In addition , the general membership rights of the Seismic Effects Panel supported the efforts in the task panel by portion as gurus for many of the manuscripts. All their collective efforts are sincerely appreciated. The particular issue starts with a lead paper, " Energy Waste Systems to get Seismic Applications: Current Practice and Recent Innovations, вЂќ which is coauthored with a mix of academicians and experts Symans, Charney, Whittaker, Constantinou, Kircher, Meeks, and McNamara. The lead paper provides an overview of current practice and recent developments inside the application of unaggressive energy management systems to get seismic protection of structures, with particular attention directed at the application of this kind of systems inside the framing of creating structures. Furthermore, emphasis has to explanations of viscous, viscoelastic, material, and chaffing damping devices, including recent applications of these kinds of systems. In the paper " Design Formulations for Extra Viscous Dampers to Building...
