Title

Seismic Performance of Tuned Mass Dampers in Reducing the Response of Structures on Soft Soil Medium

Abstract

Parametric studies in this paper have shown that soil-structure interaction significantly affects the tuned-mass-damper's performance. As the soil medium is softening, the damper becomes less effective in reducing the maximum responses of the structure due to high damping characteristics of the soil-structure system.
