Abstract

This paper defines a current applied research project in mechanical engineering technology, describes the roles of the principles, provides a status report of year one work, and provides the major goals for year two. The purpose of the project is to develop a marketable viscoelastic structural damper utilizing ultra-high-damped elastomer to protect buildings from seismic and wind events. The project is a collaboration of Penn State Erie, Lehigh University, and Lord Corporation that is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance.
