The distributed tuned mass damper (DTMD) system consists of multiple tuned mass dampers, which are designed to suppress the undesirable structural vibration over a bandwidth centered at a particular tuned frequency. In this study, an innovative practical approach to optimally design the DTMD system has been proposed. Comparisons were made between the optimal DTMD system, obtained based on the proposed design approach, and those using the conventional design approach. The superior performance and robus…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
