: In the past it was a common practice to ignore the masonry infill walls in the design of reinforced concrete frame buildings. Many buildings were constructed with open ground storey, resulting in a serious threat when struck by a lateral load like earthquake. Thus the requirement of seismic strengthening of such buildings was felt all over the world. Various types of energy dissipating devices based on wide range of concepts were explored to seismically strengthen the structures. Metallic dampers as an energy dissipating passive device can be effectively used to address such problem. In the present study, the literature review is divided into two parts. In the first part the seismic behavior of the open ground storey buildings, and the mathematical modeling of infill masonry panels are discussed. Whereas the second part reviews the previous work carried out on the metallic dampers. was to model a building with the selected metallic damper. The study reported that metallic damper improves the performance of building.
