Supporting brace sizing in structures with added linear viscous fluid dampers: A filter design solution

Article English OPEN
Londono, J.M.; Wagg, D.; Neild, S.A.;

Viscous fluid dampers have proved to be effective in suppressing unwanted vibrations in a range of engineering structures. When dampers are fitted in a structure, a brace is typically used to attach them to the main structure. The stiffness of this brace can significant... View more
