In this study, the structural vibration analysis and design of a Timoshenko beam with the attached tuned-mass-damper (TMD) under the harmonic and random excitations are presented using the finite element technique. A design optimization methodology has been developed in which the derived finite element formulation of a Timoshenko beam with the attached TMD has been combined with the sequential quadratic programming optimization algorithm to find the optimal design variables of TMD in order to suppress the vibration effectively. The validity of the developed optimal TMD system design strategy has been verified through illustrative examples, in which the structural response comparisons and the sensitivity analysis of the design parameters have been presented. The results were compared with those available in literatures and very close agreement was achieved.
