Abstract

In the design of passive tuned mass damper (TMD) on the vibration control performance of spatial structures, we have to decide the both of a spatial arrangement and characteristics. To find an optimum design of the system is formulated as Mixed-Integer Programming (MIP) problem. It is difficult to obtain the exact global optimum solution in general form. We present a method which can guarantee to find a near-optimal solution with pre-assigned accuracy. The key concept of the method is random search based on prediction by order statistics. Through a numerical example, we investigate the applicability and effectiveness of the method to the design of TMD systems.
