Which damping system is right for your application?

Simple Pendulum Tuned Mass Damper

  • high multidirectional damping performance

  • smooth, quiet operation

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • elegant appearance, potential visitor draw

  • fewer parts mean simplicity and lower cost

Compound (Dual) Pendulum Tuned Mass Damper

  • high multidirectional damping performance

  • smooth, quiet operation

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • more compact than a simple pendulum

Opposed Pendulum Tuned Mass Damper

  • high multidirectional damping performance

  • smooth, quiet operation

  • unique configuration enables smaller footprint

  • reliable over a wide range of return period

Spring-Mass System Tuned Mass Damper

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • good “small” TMD for bridges and floors 

  • versatile configurations available

Tuned Sloshing Damper

  • good multi-directional damping performance in one system

  • silent operation 

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • water can be used for Fire Suppression Storage Water

  • lower capital costs than comparable mechanical TMD

Tuned Liquid Column Damper

  • silent operation 

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • water can be used for Fire Suppression Storage Water

Hummingbird Damper

  • highly efficient use of damping mass 

  • modular configuration allows for placement in multiple smaller spaces

  • silent operation 

  • reliable over a wide range of return periods

  • water can be used for Fire Suppression Storage Water

  • modular, prefabricated construction facilitates rapid installation

Other Types of damping solutions

We have the expertise to work with clients to explore and implement other types of damping solutions, in collaboration with structural and wind engineering teams. Our team is skilled at working across diverse project teams, an essential capability since damping systems can enable or necessitate modifications to buildings’ primary structural systems – such as their stiffness characteristics and loading distribution.
