Experimental study on the effectiveness of polymer damper in damage reduction of temporary steel grandstand
A large number of accidents, involving collapses of temporary grandstands during different types of events, were observed in the past. If the synchronized movement of people is tuned with the natural frequency of the affected part of the structure, resonance might occur. It may lead to severe damages of grandstands, their collapse or panic among the spectators. The aim of the paper is to assess, through preliminary experimental...
In this paper, experimental and numerical investigation on a composite cantilevered aluminum beam has been conducted. The subject of the study consists of two plain aluminum elements bonded with polymer adhesive of different thickness. It has been proven in the previous study that this kind of material has high damping properties. During an experimental investigation, value of damping ratios have been obtained. The aim of a numerical...
Experimental and numerical study on polymer element used for reduction of temporary steel grandstand vibrations
The purpose of the paper is to analyse the effectiveness of a polymer damper in reduction of a temporary steel grandstand vibrations through the experimental and numerical study. The damper considered in the investigation is constructed out of two L-shape steel members bonded with polymer mass of high damping properties. The element has been installed as a diagonal one at the back part of the structure. The method has been compared...
