Mishra, Rashmi (2011) Application of tuned mass damper for vibration control of frame structures under seismic excitations. MTech thesis.
Current trends in construction industry demands taller and lighter structures, which are also more flexible and having quite low damping value. This increases failure possibilities and also problems from serviceability point of view. Now-a-days several techniques are available to minimize the vibration of the structure, out of the several techniques available for vibration control ,concept of using TMD is a newer one. This study was made to study the effectiveness of using TMD for controlling vibration of structure. At first a numerical algorithm was developed to investigate the response of a shear building fitted with a TMD. Then another numerical algorithm was developed to investigate the response of a 2D frame model fitted with a TMD. A total of three loading conditions were applied at the base of the structure. First one was a sinusoidal loading, the second one was corresponding to compatible time history as per spectra of IS-1894 (Part -1):2002 for 5% damping at rocky soil with (PGA = 1g) and the third one was 1940 El Centro Earthquake record with (PGA = 0.313g).
From the study it was found that, TMD can be effectively used for vibration control of structures. TMD was more effective when damping ratio of the structure is less. Gradually increasing the mass ratio of the TMD results in gradual decrement in the displacement response of the structure.
