# Tuned Mass Damper<\/h1>\n<\/div>\n<\/div>\n<\/div>\n

A Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) is a mechanical device, that you can buy at Flow Engineering, designed to add damping to a structure for a certain range of vibration frequencies. When properly designed, the extra damping will remove excessive movements<\/span> of the structure. Feel free to contact us<\/a> for more information or for your inquiry of a tuned mass damper system.<\/p>\n

## Working Principle of the Tuned Mass Damper<\/h2>\nA Tuned Mass Damper (that you can order at our company) contains a suspended mass that is able to move in the same direction as the structure vibration direction. The oscillation frequency of the mass is tuned using either a spring system or pendulum system. When the structure starts to oscillate, the mass of the TMD mass will resonate with the vibration. A damper component connected between the structure and the TMD mass turns the kinetic energy of the structure into thermal energy, which dampens and lowers the amplitude of the structure. The design of an TMD depends on the oscillation frequency, mass of the structure, the direction of the movements (one horizontal direction, two horizontal directions, or vertical), and the available space.<\/p>\n

Here you see a test configuration of one of our TMDs using a hydraulic actuator.<\/p>\n

Design considerations<\/h2>\nIn simple situations a structure with a Tuned Mass Damper can be modeled as in the following figure.<\/p>\n

*The effects of varying several design parameters are given below.<\/p>\n*

*Mass of Structure<\/h2>\n*Increasing the mass ratio \u03bc (increasing the damper mass vs the mass of the vibrating structure) will decrease the structural displacement. The normalized structural displacement amplitude can be computed with the formula given by J.P. Den Hartog in \u201cMechanical Vibrations\u201d:<\/p>\n

<\/p>\n

As can be seen from the figure, Den Hartog\u2019s approach, calculating with\u00a0\u03b61=0\u03b61=0, is slightly conservative for steel structures (\u03b61=0.2%\u03b61=0.2%) at the lower mass ratios.<\/p>","tablet":"

TMD可以显著降低结构的响应，如下图所示。

不同设计参数的影响如下所示。

## 结构质量

增加质量比μ(增加阻尼器质量对振动结构质量)将减小结构位移。归一化结构位移幅值可以用J.P. Den Hartog在《机械振动》中给出的公式计算:

从图中可以看出，dan Hartog的方法(ζ1= 01 =0)在较低的质量比下，对于钢结构(ζ1=0.2% - ζ1=0.2%)略微保守。

Damper Frequency<\/h2>\n*The eigenfrequencies of a structure may not be known to a sufficient level of accuracy at the time that the TMDs are designed. It is then useful to define a range in which the frequency of the eigenmode to be damped is sure to reside. By designing an appropriate Tuned Mass Damper for the entire range, the TMD can be designed and produced without the need for measuring the structure eigenfrequencies.<\/p>\n

In the case that the structure has multiple eigenfrequencies relatively near to each other, a TMD with a wide effective frequency range may be used to add damping to several eigenmodes. Reducing the cost of the vibration damping system.<\/p>\n

<\/p>\n

## TMD Damping Ratio<\/h2>\n

The increase in amplitude from mis-tuned internal damping can be significant. It is because of this effect that we advise changing the internal dampers at set intervals of 15 to 25 years, depending on the damper used.<\/p>\n

## 阻尼器频率

在设计tmd时，结构的特征频率可能没有足够的精度。然后，定义一个需要阻尼的特征模态的频率肯定存在的范围是有用的。通过在整个范围内设计适当的调谐质量阻尼器，可以在不需要测华体会体育登录量结构特征频率的情况下设计和生产TMD。

当结构具有多个特征模态时，可以采用有效频率范围较宽的TMD为多个特征模态增加阻尼。降低减振系统的成本。

## TMD阻尼比

由于内部阻尼调错，振幅的增加可能是显著的。正是由于这种影响，我们建议每隔15到25年更换一次内部阻尼器，这取决于所使用的阻尼器。

我们正在进行的免维护调谐质量阻尼器的研究已经解决了线性调谐质量阻尼器的这个问题。华体会体育登录购买我们的线性调谐质量阻尼器解决方案:华体会体育登录Magnovisco线性阻尼器．
