This paper presents analytical and experimental studies on the dynamic characteristics of a variable damper developed at the Public Works Research Institute. Effectiveness of the variable damper for seismic response control of highway bridges is analytically investigated. A small-size model of the variable damper is developed and the dynamic characteristics through the dynamic loading tests is also presented.
