TUNED MASS DAMPER
The TMD system is applied to avoid the vibration control on the structures.
It consists of the installation of an auxiliary mass on the top of the building.
The mass has to be suitably connected to the building.
This mass has the function of damping the vibration of the structure thanks to the dissipation of the energy.
With the application of this system it is possible to reach a reduction of the response of the structure against the dynamic excitations
The devices are the damper of the TMD system and the behaviour affects the period of vibration.
