Abstract

This chapter presents a formal optimization methodology for the seismic design of multiple tuned-mass-dampers (MTMDs) for the multi-modal control of 3D irregular buildings. The total weight of all TMDs is minimized while both interstory drifts and total accelerations are constrained to allowable values so as to lead to a performance-based-design. The results reveal that, with the right design, MTMDs can mitigate both structural and nonstructural earthquake damage. Hence, they can potentially present a multi-hazard strategy to mitigate both winds and earthquakes.
