Vibration damping

Principle

External loads, such as wind, earthquakes and human influences, can cause the entire structure or individual parts vibrate. Such mechanical vibrations can cause discomfort, damage or even structural failure.

Applications

The KTI Tuned mass dampers (TMD) are used as damping system, which reduces substantially natural frequencies of bridges, slabs, platforms and other structures.The optimum combination of mass, frequency and damping can substantially reduce structural vibrations.
