To simplify the procedure of designing viscous dampers for stay cables in bridges, a universal estimation curve is proposed that relates the modal damping ratio of the cable with attached damper, the mode number, the damper size, the damper A modified design curve may have to incorpor...

Webgl samplesOct 16, 2015 · Elastomer . In this design, a rubber material connects the crankshaft hub and the inertia ring or weight, which controls much of the vibration. We mentioned this type of damper is used for stock applications, but some aftermarket manufacturers offer tuned elastomer designs which are specifically tuned to better handle high performance applications.

Optimal design of viscous dampers for multi-mode vibration control of bridge cables [6]Authors: X.Y.Wang,Y.Q.Ni,J.M.KoandZ.Q.Chen. In this paper the authors present a method of designing external viscous dampers with optimal damping when targeting multiple vibration modes. The model used
