Abstract: 

In this paper, designing variable stiffness semi-active tuned mass damper (SATMD) for mitigating the responses of nonlinear structures under earthquake excitation has been studied. Two semi-active control algorithms based on instantaneous optimal control and clipping control concept as well as modified balance control have been developed to determine the optimal stiffness of SATMD for nonlinear structures in each time step. For determining optimal parameters of semi-active control system including the weighting matrices in performance index of control algorithm as well as the maximum and minimum values of SATMD stiffness, an optimization problem for minimization of structure maximum response has been defined where genetic algorithm (GA) has been used for optimization. For numerical simulations, an eight-story nonlinear shear building with bilinear hysteresis behavior has been subjected to a white noise excitation and optimal SATMDs have been designed. The results showed that optimal variable stiffness SATMD using both control algorithms has been effective in suppressing the seismic responses of nonlinear structure. Also, variable stiffness SATMD shows better performance than TMD and variable damping SATMD in structural response controlling. Comparing the performance of the variable stiffness SATMD under testing earthquakes which were different from design record, showed that the efficiency of SATMD depends on the characteristics of excitation, hence design record needs to be chosen properly.
