The authors present an innovative system of vibration
control to reduce the dynamic response of tall
buildings. By considering the 'mega-substructure
configuration' where sub-structures consisting of
several floors serve as vibration absorbers, the
responses of the structure and its substructures are
reduced significantly. This system is cost effective,
since it requires no additional masses to control
vibrations as tuned mass dampers and vibrations
