In this study shaking table tests which are applied on 3-Storey reduced shear frame models with TLD’s subjected to harmonic loadings are presented. Firstly, free vibration experiments are conducted on the structure and 1st free vibration frequency of the structure is determined. The structure is shaken under harmonic loading at a frequency equal to 1st frequency of the structure which provides the resonance condition. Displacements and accelerations are measured at storey levels of the structure. A container in a rectangular prism shape is manufactured as a TLD model. Liquid is poured in the container and the same experiments are repeated at different liquid heights. The effect of TLD application on the structural models considering displacement and acceleration of the structure are investigated. In addition the effect of TLD application and its allocation at different storey levels are calculated experimentally. As a result of the conducted experiments, most convenient TLD models considering both displacement and acceleration behavior are determined. It is observed that all the damping models cause significant levels of reduction in seismic behavior of the structure under harmonic loading.
