    Abstract

    In this paper, we build an experimental environment based on realtime hybrid simulation (RTHS) technique in order to examine the robustness of tuned viscous mass damper (TVMD) against variation of supporting spring stiffness and damping coefficient. A full scale rotary inertial damper specimen is employed as the physical substructure in the experimental set up. Pure numerical analysis results validate the proposed experimental method.
