In this paper, three-dimensional wind-induced vibration control is investigated by using multiple tuned mass dampers (MTMD). A 20-story steel frame is take as a numerical example to compare the two control effects by using MTMD and TMD (tuned mass damper), in which the same control masses are set on the top floor respectively. The parameters and locations of the damper devices could be chosen optimally based on energy balance theory and genetic algorithm. Numerical results show that the total damp value and the total structural dissipative energy of MTMD is lower than TMD while the total mass are the same. Meanwhile, MTMD also shows a better performance on reducing the along wind displacement and torsion response of the structure than that of TMD. ? (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
