Abstract

The present paper focuses on the optimum design of tuned mass damper (TMD) as a device for control of the structures. The optimum free vibration parameters such as period and damping ratio depend on the soil condition. For this reason, the seven meta-heuristic algorithms namely colliding bodies optimization (CBO), enhanced colliding bodies optimization (ECBO), water strider algorithm (WSA), dynamic water strider algorithm (DWSA), ray optimization (RO) algorithm, teaching-learning-based optimization (TLBO) algorithm and plasma generation optimization (PGO) are used to find the TMD parameters considering soil-structure interaction (SSI) effects. These optimization methods are applied to a benchmark 40-story structure. For comparison, the obtained results of these algorithms are compared. The capability and robustness of the algorithms are investigated through the benchmark problem. The results are shown that the soil type affects the optimum values of the TMD parameters, especially for the soft soil. To evaluate the performance of the obtained parameters in both the frequency and time domains, time history displacement and acceleration transfer function of the top story of the structure are calculated for the model with and without considering the SSI effects.
