Abstract/Summary Earthquake is one of the most catastrophic natural events that affect civilization causing loss of human lives and destruction of cities; recent earthquakes in the Asia-Pacific region highlight the importance of further research to develop sustainable techniques to limit structural damages due to this catastrophe. The last few decades have seen the development of a number of metal yielding passive control mechanisms to minimize this damage. Added Damping and Stiffness (ADAS), Triangular Added Damping and Stiffness (TADAS) and Buckling Restrained Brace (BRB) are the most commonly used metal yielding passive control systems. Recently, a pilot testing scheme was carried out on a newly developed metal yielding device known as a yielding shear panel device (YSPD) at the University of Queensland and the City University of Hong Kong (Chan, Albermani & Williams, 2009). YSPD is designed to exploit the shear deformation capacity of metallic plates to absorb earthquake energy. Finite element models have been developed to simulate the loaddeformation behaviour of YSPD. Results obtained from the developed finite element (FE) models are compared against available test results. The current paper presents a review on metal yielding devices with special focus on the suitability of YSPD in earthquake damage mitigation.
