Abstract

Tuned liquid dampers (TLD) have been widely applied in the area of vibration control for the advantages of economy, easy implementation and multifunction. However, the traditional TLD needs to be improved because of its narrow control frequency ranges and unsatisfactory capability. Based on a traditional TLD, the scheme of a new TLD is presented in the paper according to the theory of Karman Vortex concept. Related shaking table tests are conducted to study its cha-racteristics and the contrast experiments to a traditional TLD are also conducted in terms of variable mass ratios and frequency ratios. Finally, the results show that the damping effects of the new Vor-tex based TLD are generally superior to the traditional TLD.
