A newly developed vertical steel pipe damper is introduced to improve the seismic performance of steel moment frames. The damper exhibits large lateral stiffness and excellent capability to dissipate energy due to earthquakes. It provides a reliable, compact, inexpensive, and replaceable damper. Improved performance of the structure is verified analitically using a four-story steel moment frame equipped with steel pipe dampers. Vertical steel pipe dampers are placed between any two points where large relative motion exists during earthquake excitation. A nonlinear dynamic analysis of the structure using PERFORM-3D software demonstrated the significant benefit of equipping the structure with steel pipe dampers. All structural components, except the steel pipe dampers, remain elastic during earthquake excitation. Structures properly designed with vertical steel pipe dampers will only require minimum post-earthquake inspection and limited damage. Some practical issues associated with the application of vertical steel pipe dampers to building structure for seismic response reduction are presented in this paper.
