The technologies for seismic response reduction have been developing for years. In past few decades the studies over dampers have achieved much pace and thus the effectiveness and the capability of dampers have improved accordingly. An inertial amplification mechanism (IAM) is a developing one in the field of seismic dampers. An IAM make use of the inertia of a mass to dissipate energy from a system. The mechanism cut the energy of a moving or vibrating system down in each cycle of movement. This work looked into the applicability of an IAM as an additional damper along with a conventional tuned mass damper (TMD) in a high-rise building, here the whole mechanism was named as IAM-TMD. A comparative study of a building; without dampers, with TMD, and with multi degree of freedom IAM-TMD have been made as part of this work.
