Tuned Liquid Dampers (TLD) consist of a container that is generally partially filled with water. When the sloshing frequency of the water mass is tuned to the fundamental mode of the primary structure a significant amount of sloshing and wave breaking can be achieved which are the primary sources of energy dissipation. Although TLDs are easy to install, operate and maintain; it is generally challenging to model the nonlinear nature of sloshing water. Equivalent mechanical models provide a simplified solution in which sloshing liquid mass, liquid damping, and sloshing frequency are represented by an equivalent mass, damper, spring system. Equivalent mechanical model derivations are generally based on linear sloshing of water mass, which is possible when the water depth/tank length ratio is high and excitation amplitude is low. In this study, a well-known and widely accepted Housner equivalent mechanical model is used to model water sloshing. The water depth/tank length ratio is kept low to enhance the energy dissipation of TLD. The main objective of this study is to experimentally investigate the effectiveness of TLD and check the accuracy of Housner equivalent mechanical model under seismic excitations and low water depth/tank length ratio. Water depth is optimized by the Artificial Bee Colony algorithm which is a population-based optimization algorithm. Frequency sweep analysis and seismic excitations are employed to investigate TLD performance. It is shown that even TLD behavior is modeled by a simplified linear equivalent mechanical model, it is still effective in reducing structural response under large amplitude seismic excitations and low water level/tank length ratios. This is due to more energy dissipation with an increased amount of sloshing and wave breaking.

13/04/2022 Fraudulent Emails Impersonating Our Journal: We noticed that some emails are sent to some people impersonating our journal staff as sender and requesting recipients to follow some links. Our journal and staff has nothing to do with these emails and please do not follow the given links. Senders seem to have malicious aims. The emails include a portion of some of our previous emails to the journal users and researchers. This is only to deceive the receiver and make them trust the email. Do not follow any links or perform suspicious actions specified in these emails. Please, check the sender info carefully. Even the sender address or name resembles the journal related words they are different, generally in an easily noticeable way.


09/03/2022 Outstanding Reviewer Award: The reviewers are the anonymous heroes of the publishing society. Reviewing manuscripts is not an easy task but it is critical to the advancement of scientific knowledge. Even if authors take credit for publishing papers, the recognition of the reviewers are highly limited for their work. Therefore, our journal announces the reviewers that participated in editorial processes of the submitted articles in a yearly basis. Now, we expand our efforts to appreciate the valuable contribution of our reviewers and start to give Outstanding Reviewer Awards.


More info can be found at Reviewer Awards section.
