Abstract

Sandy soil behaves nonlinearly which affects on the vibration of machine foundations. In order to control the foundation response, damping can be introduced using tuned mass dampers. It is shown the foundation nonlinear vertical response using two different dynamic soil models, and the control of the response by linking linear or nonlinear tuned mass dampers to the foundation.

Control of Vertical Nonlinear Vibrations of Foundations

St. Louis, Missouri

Sandy soil behaves nonlinearly which affects on the vibration of machine foundations. In order to control the foundation response, damping can be introduced using tuned mass dampers. It is shown the foundation nonlinear vertical response using two different dynamic soil models, and the control of the response by linking linear or nonlinear tuned mass dampers to the foundation.
