Dynamic Analysis of Active Mass Damper


Article Preview

This article presents a CAD design and analysis of the dynamics of a mass damper, used to reduce amplitude of vibrations in a high building. The mass damper dissipates the energy of earthquakes or strong winds on the top, thus avoiding structure damage, and preventing collapse.
