Tuned Liquid Dampers(TLD) are energy dissipation devices that have been proposed to control the dynamics response of structure. The TLD has been shown to effectively control the wind response of structures. However, controlling responses of structures with TLD under seismic loads are not fully investigated. The objective of this study is to evaluate the seismic performance of single degree of freedom(SDF) with TLDs having various tuning and mass raitos. For this purpose, analytical studies are conducted. Different soil conditions are considered in this study. As a result, performance of TLD, appeared diffrently depending on the natural period, damping ratio of the structure. Also TLD tuning ratio appeared differently.
