Tuned Mass Dampers

Tuned Mass Dampers or TMD’s, are additional damping which are added to slender structures to help eliminate or minimise unwanted movements which cause damage to the structures. As these structures can be lightweight, they are vulnerable against natural forces such as wind, waves or even earthquakes. This can cause damage as the continuous unwanted movements cause the natural resonance frequency to move closer to the vortex shredding frequency. TMD’s help to prevent this and avoid any issues or complications down the road.

Fluid Viscous Dampers

Fluid Viscous Dampers are an alternative form of damper which work based on the principle of dissipation of energy due to fluid flowing through orifices.
