The purpose of this study is the displacement and velocity dependence evaluation of clamped shape metallic damper, which were evaluated superior in energy dissipation capacity than straight type slit damper. For this purpose, 6 metallic damper specimens are prepared and dependence test are performed. Test variables are displacement dependence and velocity dependence. According to displacement dependence test results, larger target displacement (50mm) shows lower cyclic numbers and cumulated energy dissipated area than lower target displacement (25mm). Also it shows higher strength and early failure than short target displacement. In velocity dependence evaluation, fast target velocity (60mm/sec) shows lower cyclic numbers and cumulated energy dissipated area than slow target velocity (40mm/sec). Therefore the hysteresis dependence of metallic damper were evaluated as close relation to the loading displacement and velocity conditions.
