Abstract

Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) devices are widely adopted as a valid mechanical solution for the vibration mitigation of structural systems and buildings under dynamic excitation. In the specific challenging context of seismic engineering, TMDs may represent a convenient option for both aseismic structural design and seismic retrofitting. However, the expectable efficiency rate of TMDs in that context is still debated. Besides, potential Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) effects may become crucial in the mechanical system, and should properly be taken into account for the optimum TMD design, in order to avoid possible de-tuning. This work contributes to this framework, by investigating the effectiveness of an optimum TMD in reducing the linear structural response to strong-motion earthquakes of a given set of Multi-Degree-Of-Freedom (MDOF) low- and high-rise shear-type frame structures, by embedding SSI within the dynamic and TMD optimisation model. The TMD is seismically tuned through a dedicated two-variable optimisation procedure, for each specific case (primary structure, seismic event and soil type), therefore providing the optimum device setting for each given context. Average primary structure response indices are specifically targeted to that purpose, while maximum ones are monitored. A quite considerable range of optimisation cases is considered (eighty instances), to outline rather general considerations and average trends on TMD optimisation and effectiveness within the seismic SSI framework, for both low- and high-rise buildings. Such an investigation shall provide useful guidelines for a comprehensive tuning of TMDs in mechanical systems and specifically in the presence of seismic SSI, to be consulted in view of real-case applications.
