Abstract

The latest earthquakes history shows that resistant conception, safe and economical structures are a daily challenge for structural engineers. Among the newest vibration control devices figures the inerter which is a device which can develop a large fictive mass (it consists of a mass amplification effect) using rotational inertia. In this research work, the effectiveness of a traditional passive tuned mass damper (TMD) is compared with a tuned mass damper inerter (TMDI) which consists generally of tuned mass damper coupled with an Inerter. Both devices are used to control a base-isolated structure vibration submitted to several seismic records. In This study, a base-isolated structure of six stories (6 DOF) was equipped with (TMD) and (TMDI) and a time history analysis were performed under different earthquake records (El Centro, Kobe, Kocaeli). The mathematical model of the building is established in MATLAB Simulink. The simulation results illustrated he robustness, performance and effectiveness of the structure equipped with a (TMDI). The dynamical parameters of interest were base and top displacement as well as the base shear force and peak inerter force produced.
