Abstract: This paper examines efficacy of tuned mass dampers ~TMD! in controlling self-excited motion resulting from negativ damping. New optimal TMD parameters are suggested which provide better performance than those suggested in the litera dependence of TMD performance on structural damping is highlighted. The equations of motion of a combined system com multiple TMDs attached to a bridge deck are presented… CONTINUE READING
