Steel damper is a new damper which is composed of steel pipe and curved steel bar. Because of simple production and good economic performance, It has good application prospect in large span structure, such as grid and reticulated shell. On the base of introducing the basic structure of steel damper and considering nonlinear properties of material, finite element software ANSYS was used to establish the calculation model. Influence to damper performance with parameters variation is analyzed in this article, then seismic performance of spherical reticulated shell installed with damper is researched. The results of study show that the steel damper is good in seismic performance, and has good enhancement effect to seismic performance of large span structure, such as grid and reticulated.
