Abstract: Dampers are the energy dissipating devices which are used to resist lateral forces acting on the structure. Dampers are used to reduce the buckling of columns and deflection of beams and to increase the stiffness of the structure. Damper is used to reduce the vibration and deformation of RC framed structure during earthquake. This study deals with the performance evaluation of various type of passive control devices for the selected RC frame structure. Time history analysis is carried out on a G+9 story RC framed structure with and without dampers by using sap 2000. Result of the analysis revealed that maximum absolute displacement, storey shear, storey drift values are more in case of RC framed structure without damper as compared to RC framed structure with dampers.
