Author(s): Bikram Karki and Madan Thapa
Abstract: The field of structural engineering continually seeks innovative approaches to enhance the performance and resilience of civil infrastructure. In this context, the study investigates the comparative effects of active and passive rotational movements on structural dynamics. Active rotational movements involve controlled interventions, such as tuned mass dampers, while passive rotations occur naturally due to external forces. This research aims to provide insights into the effectiveness of active rotational control strategies in mitigating structural vibrations and improving dynamic performance. Through numerical simulations and laboratory experiments, this study analyzes a variety of structural systems subjected to both active and passive rotational excitations. The findings contribute to a deeper understanding of rotational dynamics in civil engineering, offering valuable implications for the design and retrofitting of structures.
