Abstract

The present study investigates the performance of fixed parameter control algorithms on wind-excited high-rise structures equipped with semi-active tuned mass dampers of variable damping. It has been demonstrated that the algorithms that increase significantly the performance of the controlled structure do so at the expense of damper strokes. When the maximum damper strokes are capped to progressively lower limits, the efficacy of different algorithms, measured through a number of performance objectives, drastically alters totally changing the performance ranking of them and pointing out the need for an extensive study of the interplay between loading, control algorithm and allowable stroke within the design of semi-active tuned mass dampers devices.
