Abstract

This paper examines the response reduction capabilities of a passive fluid damper device known as the liquid column vibration absorber (LCVA), when installed on a 5 storey benchmark building structure requiring control.'The 5 storey benchmark building, is a scaled model of 3.6 metres maximum height, that is excited at its base level on a shake table. The benchmark frame is one iri a series of recognised benchmark buildings for research into control, as adopted by the International Association for Structural Control (IASC). The behaviour of the LCVA, unlike prior studies, has been examined utilising
