Vibration reduction of a single-degree-of-freedom system connected to two tuned mass dampers (TMDs) equipped with dry friction dampers is considered in this work. The system is subjected to sinusoidal base excitation. Parameters of TMDs are optimized to minimize the peak values of the response of the primary system. Harmonic balance method (HBM) is used to obtain the steady state solution of the three-degrees-of-freedom nonlinear system in frequency domain. Newton’s method with arc length continuation is utilized to solve the resulting nonlinear algebraic equation set. In addition to that, optimum linear system and other nonlinear elements are investigated. Genetic algorithm is used to optimize parameters of TMDs.

Ride comfort improvement by application of tuned mass dampers and lever type vibration isolators
Aydan, Göksu; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
In this study, the efficiency of linear and rotational tuned mass dampers (TMD) and lever type vibration isolators (LVI) in improving ride comfort is investigated based on a vehicle quarter-car model. TMDs reduce vibration levels by absorbing the energy of the system, especially at their natural frequencies. Both types of TMDs are investigated in the first part of this study. Although linear TMDs can be implemented more easily on suspension systems, rotational TMDs show better performance in reducing vibrat...
Vibration reduction of structures by using nonlinear tuned vibration absorbers
Doğan, Muhammed Emin; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Tuned Vibration Absorbers (TVA) are commonly used in reducing undesirable vibrations of mechanical structures. However, TVAs work in a very limited frequency range and if the excitation frequency is outside of this range, they become ineffective. In order to solve this problem, researchers started to consider nonlinear TVAs for vibration attenuation. In this study, dynamic behavior of a Linear systems coupled with a nonlinear TVA is investigated. The system is subjected to sinusoidal base excitation. Parame...
Frequency domain non-linear modelling and analysis of liquid filled column dampers
Kızılay, Hazım Sefa; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Springer, Cham; 2019-02-20)
Tuned liquid column dampers (TLCDs) have an extensive usage as an effective vibration absorber to enhance the structure response under the effect of seismic or wind loads. In this study, parameter optimization of nonlinear model of a TLCD in frequency domain under harmonic excitation is proposed in order to improve performance of TLCDs. The non-linearity in the model is due to the head-loss caused by the orifice resulting in velocity squared damping. A 6-story building with a TLCD is considered as a case st...

Acoustic loading formed due to boundary layer fluctuation, engine efflux and separated aerodynamic flow cause vibration that may result in fatigue failure of the structure. The subject of this thesis deals with the analytical acoustic fatigue procedure composition and validation in addition to critical wall stress analysis of representative weapon bay.
