2. According to Kourakis (2005), massive wire cables is used to support the tuned mass damper become like pendulum.
3. According to Kelleher (n.d), the eight massive steel cables are acting like conventional spring to support the tuned mass damper and it also support by eight hydraulics to support at high amplitudes of oscillation. [Video presentation : how tuned mass damper work]
B. Tuned mass damper carries out the main function of avoiding Taipei 101 from collapse. 1. Tuned mass damper function when Taipei 101 hits by wind load and face earthquake by carry some responsibility, such as, to cut the vibration that hit Taipei 101 around 40%.
2. When Taipei 101 can face the typhoons and vibration from earthquake, by absorb this vibration then transmit it to the 8 hydraulic pistons to balancing it.
Listener relevance: By knowing the tuned mass damper, we can understand that the important of tuned mass damper for the skyscraper, to maintain the building from collapse and as attraction to the people. Although, the tuned mass damper need large space to install, but, it is very economical solution that can be used to absorb the vibration, by compare to the...
