Abstract: For the seismic design of building structure, the traditional method, i.e., strengthening the stiffness, strength, and ductility of the structure has been in common use for a long time. Therefore, the dimensions of structural members and the consumption of material are expected to be increased, which leads to higher cost of the buildings as well as larger seismic responses due to the larger stiffness of the structures Thus, the efficiency of the traditional method is constrained. To overcome these disadvantages associated with the traditional method, many vibration-control measures, called structural control, have been studied and remarkable advances in this respect have been made over recent years. Structural Control is a diverse field of study. Controlling the response of the structure is one important aim of researcher these days. Dampers are one of the popular vibration control devices of structures, because of their safe, effective and economical design. This paper presents an overview of literature related to the behavior of different dampers in the seismic event. The review includes different types of dampers like the metallic damper, viscous damper visco-elastic damper, and friction damper.
