Seismic performance of mass-variable tuned liquid dampers with particles fluidization in building applications
"A conventional tuned liquid damper (TLD) generates a relatively small control force associated with low density of sloshing water. To overcome this main drawback, proposed in this study is a new TLD system composed of water and fine particles in a rectangular tank of sloping bottom...In this study, the behavior and response of water sloshing, single particle, single layer of particles and multiple layers of particles were investigated both experimentally and numerically"--Abstract, leaf iii.
