The solution to vibration problems in structures

The vibration of slender structures can be caused by cross-wind loads (also known as vortex shedding). Slender structures can start oscillating because of these natural forces; it happens when the damping is small and the natural resonance frequency is close to the vortex shedding frequency. When adding additional damping, such as Tuned Mass Dampers, to the structure, vibration problems in these structures can be eliminated. This can be done in existing structures, but also during the design phase.

Our experience and expertise

We have over 20 years of experience in the calculation, design and installation of Tuned Mass Damper solutions. Our solutions – such as a Liquid Mass Damper or a Tuned Liquid Damper – can be applied in any slender structure, like bridges, industrial chimneys, flagpoles and distillation columns. They can’t just eliminate vibration problems in structures, but also prevent fatigue damage. If you want to know more about our solutions, please contact us by calling +31 (0)180 – 63 11 60.
