A mass damper is a vibration absorber able to attenuate the vibrations of a structure or a machinery. By a mass damper it's possible to increase the global damping of the system without the necessity to modify the mechanical structure.

Mass damper development A mass damper is a vibration absorber able to attenuate significantly the vibrations of a structure or a machine. In the graph we report the frequency response of a machine with and without mass damper. The application of a mass damper gives an important increment of the global damping. Mass damper action 0.9 without mass damper with mass damper 0.8 Displacement [mm] 0.7 0.6 0.5 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1 0.0 0 300 600 900 1200 1500 Rotor speed [rpm] Frequency response measured on a vibrating machine 1800

Fields of application • Tool machines • Machine frames and chassis • Gears and transmissions • Stacks • Bridges and footbridges • Constructions • Energy generation plants • Wind turbines

Mass damper examples Eidos Engineering develops and supply new generation vibration absorbers, designed according to customer’s specifications. Mass damper for a stack Mass damper for a wind turbine A wide range of sizes is possible, starting from few grams for electronic devices, up to Mass damper for a tool machine some tons, for structures such as bridges or buildings.

Mass damper for structures Displacement [m] without tuned mass damper Time [s] Dynamic analysis of a three stories structure. The graphs show the displacements of the structure under the 1976 Friuli earthquake without the application of a mass damper and with a mass damper placed at top. Displacement [m] with tuned mass damper Time [s] Friuli 1976 – Buja seismic station Displacement of the structure at top

Advantages • Up to 70% vibration reduction • Up to 70% stress reduction • Noise attenuation • Increased security • Opportunity to reduce weight and dimensions of mechanical structures • Simplicity and reliability
