Tuned Mass Damper design
We have a Tuned Mass Damper that has a design that is specially made to add damping to a structure for a specific frequency. Flow Engineering has over 20 years of experience in the calculation, design and installation of Tuned Mass Damper systems. They are applicable to flagpoles, bridges, industrial chimneys and other slender structures.
- Preventing dynamic problems at the design phase
- Analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structures
Specialised Tuned Mass Damper design
Thanks to their unique design, our Tuned Mass Damper solutions have proven themselves in practice. They do not only offer reduction of the vibration of the structure, but also prevent fatigue damage. When slender structures start to oscillate because of cross-wind loads (vortex shedding) or the force of waves, the oscillation frequency has to be tuned. This can be done with Tuned Mass Dampers. They will oscillate in the opposite direction, functioning as a frictional or hydraulic component that connects the structure and mass and turns the kinetic energy into thermal energy.
Order your custom made Tuned Mass Damper
The design of a Tuned Mass Damper is custom made because it depends on the oscillation frequency and mass of the structure, the available space and whether the movements are horizontal or vertical. We also are your partner to prevent bridges from swaying. Call +31 (0)180 – 63 11 60 to contact us.
