Tuned mass dampers attached to single degree-of-freedom systems representing tall buildings are studied. System equations are formulated and solved for various input forcing functions. Design parameters of the damper are varied to study the response reduction. Experimental wind tunnel results are presented, and a practical application of a large-scale damper is illustrated.
