Part of the Springer Tracts in Civil Engineering book series (SPRTRCIENG)


The commonly used frequency-modulation (FM) vibration control includes Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) and Tuned Liquid Damper (TLD). Basic principle of TMD and TLD, including motion equation, basic characteristics and basic construction of vibration control system are introduced respectively in this chapter.
