Abstract:

A Single-Degree-of-Freedom system with the addition of Tuned Liquid Damper (TLD) was analyzed experimentally and numerically. In this study, a shaking table and finite element software were used in order to obtain the acceleration responses of seven structure-TLD systems. The TLD frequencies were calculated by formula and models frequencies were calculated via finite element software and experimental work. The models were excited by a sine and an earthquake load. The results obtained from the software and experimental works were compared to each other and the results have been found to be in good agreement. Finally, it was concluded that the tuned liquid damper decreases the response of a structure under earthquake excitation and sine load. In addition, it was determined that the frequency tuning ratio and mass ratio of the damper are very effective parameters in reducing of structural response.
