Tuned Mass Dampers: the case study of Taipei 101
Tuned mass dampers: the case study of Taipei 101
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING CREDITS
Will be released to Italian engineers
Structures such as buildings and bridges constantly experience fluctuating dynamic loads from wind, vehicles, pedestrians, occupants, crowds, and machinery. This seminar will discuss the impact of these excitation sources on structures, and, using a performance-based design approach, practical and proven methods of using damping systems for vibration control. Real-life examples will be used from projects completed by the first presenter (including an 800 ton TMD at Taipei 101, and other towers and bridges around the world).
The final part of the seminar describes fluid viscous dampers, in particular those specially designed to adopt different behaviours in the different range of velocities corresponding to wind and earthquake. The procedure and results of testing campaigns, aimed at verifying the dampers’ behaviour during both wind and earthquake input, are presented. Some examples of application in buildings are given, in particular in tall buildings.
