  • The presentation focuses on the development of smart monitoring and earthquake reduction technologies developed for high-tech fabs. The structural response caused by micro vibration or earthquake motions can be monitored and the system can be further implemented into a warning system. A new lever viscoelastic damping wall (LVDW), dual-core self-centering brace (DC-SCB) and sandwiched buckling-restrained brace (SBRB) that are aimed to reduce seismic drifts of high-tech fabs in small and large earthquakes have been studied in the last few years at the National Taiwan University, Taiwan. These seismic-resisting devices were tested statically or dynamically at NCREE to verify the performance. Inelastic time-history analyses were also conducted on a high-tech fab and office to investigate the seismic performance. Application of the devices is underway in several projects.​
