Tuned Mass Damper supplier
Flow Engineering is not only a Tuned Mass Damper supplier, we are specialised in the calculation, design and installation of Tuned Mass Dampers. We can also take care of preliminary design of industrial chimneys, stacks and flares and preventing dynamic problems at the design phase. Of course it is also possible to design and deliver Tuned Mass Dampers for existing structures.
TMD Design Method
Upon an inquiry, we will ask for information about your structure of which the most important parameters are:
- Type of the structure
- Vibration load type
(for example wind, seismic, human-induced, machinery, traffic etc.)
- Resonance frequency
- Total mass that is vibrating
(calculated using the sum of all mass elements times the square of their local displacement)
Using the information above, we will help you find a solution for your situation.
Using our developed design tools and software, we are able to guarantee the desired performance for any structure with any combination of TMD systems. We are constantly updating these tools and software to match the demands of our customers. This allows us to automate processes between us and our clients and can reduce overhead and cost with every new project.
We can also supply the design of industrial chimneys, stacks and flares and prevent vibration problems during the design phase. Of course, it is also possible to design and deliver Tuned Mass Dampers for existing structures.
By applying a TMD to your structure, vibrations due to resonance are greatly reduced. When considering an independent force, the vibration of a steel structure can be reduced up to 98%. This depends on the existing damping in the structure and type of dynamic load and size of the TMD.

- Analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structures
Flow Engineering: a Tuned Mass Damper supplier
We are specialised in Tuned Mass Dampers. Tuned Mass Dampers are made to add damping to a slender structure. Nowadays engineers design structures to be as light as possible. However, this makes the structure more sensitive to natural influences such as wind, waves and earthquakes. It can cause the slender structure to oscillate, which can cause damage. When the structure starts to oscillate, the Tuned Mass Damper will oscillate in the opposite direction. Flow Engineering designs a custom made Tuned Mass Damper and is also a supplier.
More information about Tuned Mass Dampers
All Tuned Mass Dampers are custom made, because it depends on the frequency of the oscillation, the direction of the movements, the available space and the mass of the structure. If you want to know more about the design and installation of Tuned Mass Dampers, or are looking for a Tuned Mass Damper supplier, please do not hesitate to contact Flow Engineering by calling +31 (0)180 – 63 11 60.
