Abstract
This paper presents recent important advances in the application of passive response control technology for metal spatial structures in several countries. References to recently implemented projects in Japan, USA, China, and other countries are provided. These structural systems are categorized and classified into truss, cable, and roof structures. Detailed projects belonging to each of these categories are described, along with information on the type of devices and their performance.
