Tall buildings could be built quicker and more cheaply if damping models were correct

From University of Bristol 20/09/23 Multi-storey buildings are assembled over cautiously to withstand wind strengths, researchers have found. This is because there are several difficulties in estimating damping – the method of removing energy in order to control vibratory motion like noise and mechanical oscillation, accurately in high-rise buildings. The findings, published today in the […]
