Tuned Mass Damper calculation
Flow Engineering can execute a Tuned Mass Damper calculation. We are specialised in the calculation, design and installation of Tuned Mass Dampers and have over 20 years of experience. Our Tuned Mass Damper solutions can be applied to slender structures such as flagpoles, bridges, chimneys and distillation columns and can prevent or reduce vibration problems and fatigue damage.
- Preliminary design of chimneys, stacks, flares
- Preventing dynamic problems at the design phase
- Analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structures
Tuned Mass Damper calculation by Flow Engineering
Flow Engineering is not only specialised in the design, calculation and installation of Tuned Mass Dampers. We are also specialised in the preliminary design of chimneys, stacks, flares and other slender structures. When designing a slender structure, we can do a calculation to see if adding a Tuned Mass Damper is needed.
What does a Tuned Mass Damper do?
A Tuned Mass Damper is added to slender structures to prevent or reduce vibration problems that are caused by natural influences such as wind (vortex shedding), waves or earthquakes. When the structure starts to oscillate, the mass of the Tuned Mass Damper will oscillate in the opposite direction. It is a hydraulic component that turns the kinetic energy into thermal energy.
