Coarse aggregate is one of the essential components of concrete and occupies the largest volume in the mix. That is why it greatly affects the concrete mix design. Its properties such as strength, maximum size, shape, and water absorption influence water demand, the quantity of cement and fine aggregate in concrete mixture
In this video you will learn what is seismic damper and why we use them in structure? in addition we mentioned friction dampers which are one the most popular type of dampers.
