Issue Date: 1994 Konferenzbeitrag Schuëller, Gerhart I. (Hrsg.): Structural safety & reliability. 3. Rotterdam : Balkema, 1994. - ISBN 90-5410-379-5, S. 1699-1702
Abstract: Wind excited vibrations of high-rise buildings can be reduced by installing additional damping devices like tuned mass dampers. The design of tuned mass dampers on different levels of the building is performed via a computer-aided modeling and design approach. A multi body system model is used for describing the dynamic behavior of the structure and the problem of optimizing the parameters of the damping devices is formulated as a nonlinear programming problem. An application to a building of the University of Stuttgart shows that optimal designs with minimal accelerations of the building can easily be obtained.
