Shaking Table Model Test for a Steel Structure under Control of Tuned Liquid Damper
The results of a series of shaking table tests of a steel structural model setting on rigid foundation are introduced. The purpose of these tests is to study the mechanism and efficiency of the tuned liquid damper for suppressing the seismic responses of the structure. The numerical results will be taken as the comparison data for studying the effect of soil - structure interaction on the control efficiency of the tuned liquid damper in reducing the seismic responses of the structure. The test results show that the capacity of TLD for suppressing the seismic responses of the structure can be enhanced when the grille fence is set in TLD device. The amplitudes of the seismic motion acceleration as well as the frequency spectrum features of the input have important effects on the control behavior of TLD.
