Unified dynamic absorber design formulas for wind-induced vibration control of tall buildings
Abstract:The objective of this paper is to establish some unified design formulas for various kinds of passive dynamic absorber for wind-induced vibration control of tall buildings. A total of five different passive dynamic absorbers (TMD, TLCD, LCVA, C-TLD and R-TLD) are considered in this study. Firstly, unified equations of motion for the building–absorber system under wind-induced excitation are presented. A set of unified formulas for the optimal properties and the equivalent damping ratios for these five dynamic absorbers are then derived analytically. The Shanghai Central Plaza, which is a thirty-nine-story reinforced-concrete building, is used as an example to demonstrate the procedure and to verify the accuracy of the unified approach. The results show that these unified formulas provide direct performance evaluation and comparison between the five dynamic absorbers for the control of wind-induced vibration of tall buildings. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
