Tuned Mass Dampers for structures
With Tuned Mass Dampers for structures, vibration problems due to natural forces can be prevented or reduces. Flow Engineering has over 20 years of experience regarding the calculation, the design and installation of Tuned Mass Dampers for structures. They can be applied to flagpoles, chimneys, distillation columns, bridges and other slender structures and have proven themselves in practice. Tuned Mass Dampers can be deployed to stop building vibrations due to wind or earthquakes.
Tuned Mass Dampers for the Structures of The Future
Designing structures in a more efficient way is one of the major milestones of the 21st century. This global effort aims to make structures more durable. Modern structures that are designed using cutting edge technology aims to go towards the limits of what engineers can do, and doing so, a structure without a Tuned Mass Damper system, or any other measures to gain dynamic stability, is almost unthinkable.
Flow Engineering aims to supply the complete engineering against the forces of nature. For architects and contruction companies, we make their structures ready against today’s and future challanges.
- Preventing dynamic problems at the design phase
- Analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structures
How does a Tuned Mass Damper work?
The Tuned Mass Damper will start taking care of vibration problems in structures once the structure starts to oscillate. The Tuned Mass Damper will then oscillate in the opposite direction, turning kinetic energy into thermal energy. The design of the damper depends on the oscillation frequency, the direction of the movements, available space and the mass of the structure.
