Tuned Mass Damper in Taipei 101


Tuned mass damper is a harmonic absorber mounted in buildings to reduce the amplitude of the vibrations. With these, you can easily prevent structure failures. This huge tuned mass damper weighs around 800 tons (GIF), and on May 12, 2008, it protected the skyscraper Taipei 101 in Taiwan from succumbing to the likes of an earthquake. Taipei 101 rises to 509 meters and with it’s construction in 2004, it was the tallest building in the world.
