    Abstract: The behavior of structures in recent years indicates that moderate and severe earthquakes lead to substantial damages, extensively higher than what is expected. One solution in order to reduce the seismic response of the structures, especially in relative story displacements is usage of tuned mass dampers (TMD). In this study, comparisons between u...

    Abstract: The technological trend towards waste utilization and cost reduction in industrial processing has attracted the use of Rice Husk (RH) and Date palm leaves (DPL) as a value added material. Both RH and DPL have been found suitable for wide range of domestic as well as industrial applications. This paper presents the finding of the investigations done... Show More
