Abstract

"The effects of a dissipative coupling between adjacent structures subjected to synchronous imposed ground motion have been investi-gated. The study evidences the existence of an optimal pair of the de-sign parameters characterizing a passive interconnection described through a Kelvin-Voigt model. The assumed optimization criterion corresponds to the maximum damping reachable in the parameter space associated to a simple 2dof dynamic model which describes the linear interaction. The analysis of the displacement transfer functions with respect to harmonic ground motion confirms the adopted choice. "
