In this paper the preliminary study of an experimental reduced scale steel model of a medium-rise building structure dynamically protected with energy dissipators is presented. The energy dissipators analysed in this article principally involve the steel-steel friction to dissipate energy as the structure undergoes interstory drifts. Preliminary tests have been performed on the shaking table of the Applied Geophisics Laboratory of the Politechnic of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain. The experimental program consisted of identification tests (to determine the natural periods and the dynamic characteristics of the model) and a preliminary numerical analysis on the earthquake simulation tests (to study the dynamic behaviour of the model with and without the dissipators). Results show the efficacy of the protection system.
