Tuned Liquid Dampers

Dampers can be an effective means to reduce wind-induced motions. The two most common dampers used in building motions are; Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) and Tuned Liquid Dampers (TLD). The Laboratory would be available to discuss with you the benefits of both and the services that we can provide in developing a solution.

The Laboratory is not only involved with damping systems for tall towers but has also been active in dampers for chimneys, air traffic control towers and bridge cables. This experience combined with our full-scale measurement experience allows us to assist from the initial design stage to the commissioning and verification stage.
