Recently tuned mass dampers have been installed on three-story prefabricated houses for reducing of traffic-induced vibration and improving living comfort. This tuned mass damper consists of a mass unit, spring units and laminated rubber bearings. The mass is supported by four laminated rubber bearings, and spring units are used for adjusting the natural frequency of the tuned mass damper to the optimal value. Vibration control performance of this type of tuned mass dampers is deteriorated when the natural frequency of the house is changed. To solve this problem, the authors have developed a damping coupled tuned mass damper. In this type of tuned mass damper, two mass units having slightly different natural frequencies are coupled by using a damping unit. In this paper, mechanism and vibration control performance of the damping coupled tuned mass damper are described.
