Design of Motion Dampers

Introduction

WINDTECH Consultants provides cost effective designs of motion dampers to control building motion. This is normally carried out in the cases where wind tunnel testing indicates exceedance of occupant comfort criteria for building motion. Our experience is that tuned liquid dampers are far more cost effective. WINDTECH Consultants has designed both sloshing liquid dampers and tuned liquid column dampers. Our services include testing of prototypes, on-site measurement of the dynamic properties of the tower at an advanced stage of construction and commissioning.

WINDTECH Consultants also offers design and commissioning services for other types of dampers such as tuned mass dampers, viscoelastic dampers and damped outrigger systems.
