    Because of considerable damage due to earthquakes, design methods for antiseismic structures nowadays rely on the vibration theory. This text evaluates the fundamental period of vibration of the structure, its recovery characteristics and energy absorption.

    Present status of the technological development of response-controlled and Menshin structures; Evaluation of the performance of response-control devices and Menshin devices and the reliability of response-controlled structures and Menshin structures.
