There are various applications in order to reduce seismic effects occurring in buildings. One of these applications is to install tuned mass dampers in the structures. In this study, optimization of some parameters for tuned mass dampers has been carried out with metaheuristic algorithms and their effects on structures have been investigated. Single degree of freedom structures that have different period values had been determined and tuned mass dampers had been installed in these structures. Considering the mass, damping ratio and maximum displacement parameters of the aforementioned tuned mass dampers, time history analysis, the Jaya algorithm and the Matlab program have been used. As a result of the analysis, optimum tuned mass damper parameters have been determined for single degree of freedom structures. As the novel investigation of the study, several cases of mass, damping ratio limit and stroke capacity of TMD are investigated to show the performance of an optimum TMD under these limitations
