Abstract

Optimally designed tuned mass-damper-inerters (TMDIs) are considered to meet code-prescribed serviceability criteria in typical wind-excited tall buildings subject to vortex shedding effects in a performance-based design context. The TMDI, couples the classical tuned-mass-damper (TMD) with an inerter, a two-terminal device resisting the relative acceleration of its terminals, achieving mass-amplification and higher-modes-damping effects compared to the TMD. A benchmark 74-storey building is considered, where TMDI is added to the structural system assuming ideal linear inerter behavior. The wind action is defined through a non-diagonal power spectral density matrix supporting computationally efficient frequency domain structural analyses. The TMDI is optimally designed for stiffness, damping, and inerter constant parameters via a standard numerical optimization search, for a range of pre-specified attached TMDI mass values. It is shown that the TMDI achieves more lightweight construction in the design of new code-compliant tall buildings against wind.
