Earthquake protection with SAP2000®: Use our instruction to implement RINGFEDER® Friction Springs into your construction

Share This Article:

Seismic protection is mandatory for the safety of structures, especially in earthquake-prone regions. In our latest blog post, we present the possibility of integrating RINGFEDER® Friction Springs into SAP2000®, one of the leading software solutions for designing and analysing structural systems. The instruction enables engineers with previous knowledge of SAP2000® dimension damping systems based on the Friction Spring.

Our instruction for civil engineers shows the exemplary implementation of the RINGFEDER® Friction Spring as a stiffening element in cross-bracing to efficiently model building structures and enable an economical and resource-saving design.

Due to its maintenance-free nature and resistance against high forces, the friction spring is ideally suited as a damper or tension-compression device in earthquake protection.
