Abstract

In this paper the act of hybrid mass dampers (ATMDs1) for the reduction of the buffeting response of tall buildings is investigated. A closed-loop feedback control algorithm is proposed for the control of a building as a SDOF2 system using an ATMD and a linear quadratic regulator (LQR) control law is utilized. The results are compared to those obtained with a closed form design procedure from the literature. A flexible damper proves to be more effective, but at the cost of actuating forces required.
