Life-cycle-cost optimization for the wind load design of tall buildings equipped with TMDs
Ilaria Venanzi, Laura Ierimonti and Luca Caracoglia

 
Abstract
    The paper presents a Life-Cycle Cost–based optimization framework for wind-excited tall buildings equipped with Tuned Mass Dampers (TMDs). The objective is to minimize the Life-Cycle Cost that comprises initial costs of the structure, the control system and costs related to repair, maintenance and downtime over the building
 
Key Words
    tall buildings; wind loads; non-prescriptive design; wind tunnel tests; tuned mass dampers; cost-based optimization
