Schematic Design of Distributed Mass Damping Systems for Tall Buildings

As new high-rises grow taller and more slender, the design of tall buildings becomes heavily constrained by the control of lateral displacements and accelerations due to dynamic excitations. This has led to the development of motion control devices, such as the Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) and Tuned Liquid Column Damper (

Wind Induced Vibrations to Tall Buildings and Wind Turbines

While wind generated noise maybe limited in magnitude and effect, wind-induced structures' vibrations could be a devastation (id est, Tacoma Bridge Collapse 1940). This occurs with just above moderate wind speed increase, if it can excite a structure with its natural frequencies. When this occur, structures enter a phase of oscillations
