Abstract: SUMMARY 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…
