During the earthquake phase, dampers were used to dissipate energy as well as stop the Deformation of the Structure. We may reduce buckling and failure of columns and beams by increasing the stability of the frame with the help of dampers. During earthquakes, high-rise buildings are destroyed, and there is significant deformation. We may reduce the shaking of reinforcement cement concrete structures during an earthquake by using dampers. We used various types of dampers in this analysis to determine the suitability of various damper types during an earthquake. An Empirical study has been performed for the comparative review of various forms of dampers used for multi-story cement concrete building reinforcement. The Time History Method was used to assess the seismic behaviour of a G+15 storey building with and without dampers. The earthquake load is applied in both the x and y directions for research. The IS1893:2002(part 1) code is used in conjunction with the ETABS 2018 version 18.1.1 package for the purpose of analysis. The findings of these experiments are discussed in terms of various parameters such as maximal absolute displacement, absolute acceleration, absolute velocity, storey shear, storey drift, storey stiffness, and modal participation mass ratio. It is carried out in order to compare these various parameters. Different kinds of dampers are used to dissipate seismic energy. In this article, a comparison of two different buildings of different bay sizes (5mx5m & 6mx6m) is used, as well as a comparative analysis of various parameters using Tuned Mass Damper and Fluid Viscous Damper.TECT
