There are different ways to design energy dissipators. According to the type of performance of these elements, it is better to adopt the design method according to the consumed energy in order to determine what load should be considered as the design load for the energy-dissipating elements so that these elements have the best seismic performance. One of these methods is the use of energy-based performance index. This method is usually used to design pall friction dampers. In this research, it has been tried to use this method for a 12-story reinforced concrete structure of friction dampers, viscous, and seismic isolators of the lead rubber support type, and their performance is investigated. Based on this, for the earthquake records, the energy-based performance index has been calculated and the optimal design load has been calculated for these three energy wasters. Structures with optimal design load are subjected to dynamic loads and the contribution of elements in energy loss and their fragility curve have been evaluated. The results show that in a constant spectral acceleration (Sa), the probability of exceeding the specified performance level of a structure with a friction damper that is designed on this basis is lower than other structures. Also, in the acceleration of the design, the seismic isolator has wasted more energy than the other two structures.
