What is it about?

A novel strategy to optimize the parameters of a tuned mass damper such as mass and damping ratio to earn a better performance of a structure equipped with this device against random excitations.

Why is it important?

A numerical search technique was utilized based on a formula to find optimum parameters of the tuned mass damper.


An extension of the search technique for the optimisation of the TMDs for a wider range of excitations, also considering active control strategies and hybrid strategies.
