Products for vibration reduction in bridges, structural and civil engineering
Modern buildings with slender, cantilevered shapes usually have low structural damping, which makes them susceptible to vibration caused by wind and passing traffic as well as pedestrian movement. We use absorbers to reduce the vibration of structures such as bridges, towers or chimneys. Vibration absorbers increase the structural damping and thus reduce resonance vibrations. They are tuned to the natural frequency of the building. Absorbers are very cost-effective and reliable solutions for vibration problems as they are highly effective and very robust. Vibration dampers for buildings are available at VICODA, our joint venture partner. Depending on the type of structure, different models are available.
