Optimal tuning parameters of the TMDI are detected within a probabilistic framework, by considering the stochastic nature of earthquake ground motions and solving a nonlinear optimization problem.
In particular, as sketched in Figure 2 the TMDI consists of an enhanced version of TMD (of mass [m.sub.t], spring stiffness [k.sub.t], and viscous damping [c.sub.t]) in which an inerter device, schematically represented by its inertance, is placed in between the TMD mass and the ground (points 1 and 2).
Besides the optimal design of the TMDI, which is described below in terms of its dynamic characteristics (stiffness, damping, etc.), there are a few practical considerations related to the functionality of the inerter that deserve commentary.
Inspired by the idea of EH-TMDI [35, 36], this paper proposes a novel inerter-based dynamic vibration absorber, called electromagnetic resonant shunt tuned mass-damperinerter (ERS-TMDI), in which we replace the dissipated element of the TMDI
with the electromagnetic transducer shunted with a resonant R-L-C circuit for simultaneous vibration control and energy harvesting.
To strengthen its theme, TMDI introduces a number of new and innovative commercial vehicles that helps facilitate the operations for businesses in Indonesia:
With 5 advantages such as Ultra Versatile, Ultra Style, Ultra Performance, Ultra Comfort and Ultra Safe, Biswadev Sengupta as the President Director of TMDI stated that, "Tata Ultra is an important business asset for our customers and will be the ultimate choice in a very competitive business world."
This latest commercial vehicle from TMDI is also supported with loading deck made of double corrugated galvanized steel with load capacity up to 1,000 kg with a size of (LxWxH) 1,430 x 1,410 x 400 mm and ground clearance of 210 mm.
Tata Motors has always been at the forefront of the global automotive industry, pioneering products and services, enthusing and exceeding customer expectations, for many years, with many segment and industry firsts to its name, said Biswadev Sengupta, President Director of TMDI.
Today at IIMS 2013, TMDI also introduces the Play Strong concept, a consumer-focused Tata Motors communications strategy that affirms TMDI s commitment to developing its business in Indonesia by providing strong and robust products backed by a strong commitnment to the market.
PT Tata Motors Distribusi Indonesia (TMDI
), Tata Motors 100% arm, has unveiled three new passenger vehicles in the country.
Tata Motors Distribusi Indonesia (TMDI), wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors Ltd., today announced its foray into the Indonesian automotive industry with the launch of three new exciting Tata passenger vehicles -- the Tata Aria, the Tata Vista and the Tata Safari Storme.
Affirming our commitment to expand in Indonesia, a market that offers huge potential," said Biswadev Sengupta, President Director of PT TMDI.
