Abstract: A detailed optimal parametric study is performed for a tuned liquid column damper (TLCD) in suppressing the pitching vibration of structures. Due to the difficulty of finding analytical solutions for the damped structure, a numerical optimization approach is proposed and applied to the system to find the optimum TLCD parameters. The variations of the optimum control parameter with system parameters are determined and discussed. Using various numerical searching data, a set of practical design formulas for the optimum tuning ratio and optimum head loss coefficient of the TLCD are then derived through regression analysis. The comparison between practical design formula and numerical optimization shows a very close agreement between the two results. The practical design formulas provide a convenient tool for designers. In order to account for the possible effects of structural uncertainties, a parametric sensitivity study on the detuning of optimum damper parameters is also carried out. It is found that the detuning effect is more severe for low damped structure with lower ratios of mass moment of inertia, especially for the detuning of tuning ratio.
