Abstract

The frequency response of a tuned liquid damper (TLD) which uses a magnetic fluid (called a "tuned magnetic fluid damper" (TMFD)) is investigated. A single-degree-of-freedom tuned mass damper (TMD) analogy is used to define the effective mass, stiffness and damping and these parameters are then estimated from experimental results. A numerical simulation is used to examine the TMFD and appropriate magnetic field conditions for effective damping are predicted. In particular, the performance of the TMFD was improved by switching the applied magnetic field at a point near the resonant frequency of the undamped structure.
