White paper: The Paths to Momentum TMDs with Excellent Performance

high frequency tuned mass damper

Momentum deliver top of the class tuned mass dampers. Momentum TMDs are excellent candidates for reducing high frequency resonant vibration, typically for vibration of small bore connections in process facilities, where sound is the main force and where supports or bracing are difficult to install or unviable. The name «Tuned Mass Damper» (TMD) indicates that … Read more

For the first time do Momentum Technologies participate at OTC, bringing our latest innovation the “Momentum HHS” to the market – expanding the possibilities both for us and … Read more

VIBRAVISION – See vibration in Brattørbrua


Visualization of the dynamic characteristics in Brattørbrua, Trondheim

Brattørbrua is a bridge in Trondheim, which has been in trouble. Recently it was out of operation for several days, due to that a wire went off and a bridge flap came out of position when the bridge was opened.

Momentum caught the bridge on film, with the purpose to look into the dynamic characteristics. In the video you see a video amplification, where motions not visible to the eye are visualized.

Visualization is one of the tools included in Momentum Technologies’ video based services VIBRAVISION. Learn more about VIBRAVISION here.

VIBRAVISION – See vibration in tower cranes

Visualization of dynamic response to tower cranes

Most often we in Momentum Technologies are into the dynamics of pipework, for example assessing piping vibration problems and how to reduce the energy of motion. However, harmonic motions are all around us and with VIBRAVISION, our services for video based vibration measurement and visualization, we can literally look into the dynamics to other type of constructions. Like a couple of tower cranes at a building site here in Trondheim, as we have made in the video above.

In the video you see the original video recording to the left. To the right is the same video recording, but where motion is reinforced – so that we shall be able to see if there is any motion in the crane. At this tim there is vibration in the tower cranes, and we are able to see the dynamic response to the tower cranes during lifting operations.

See vibration with VIBRAVISION


Demonstration of amplified vibration in pipe

In Momentum Technologies we always strive to find simple, targeted and cost-efficient solutions to complex problems. As for most problems within physics and technology (I guess, this is applicable for most problems in life as well) understanding the problem makes it far more easier to find out why there is a problem and what to do about it.

Vibration might often be such a complex problem. Using high speed camera, also small motions not visible to the bare eye can be identified, measured and also reinforced – enabling us to see, and much faster understand the vibration problem.

We in Momentum Technologies are proud to announce that we can provide services based upon video based vibration measurement and analysis: VIBRAVISION. Services that enables us to visualize vibration so it is easier for us to communicate how and why there is vibration, and what to do about it.

In the video above, a video of vibration in a pipe is reinforced. The clip to the right shows how the vibrating pipe is percieved by the bare eye. The clip to the left is reinforced and filtered to show the first natural frequency (133 Hz).

Did I mention that it also works at longer distances – and it allows you to think outside the box with regard to available access?

See what noise looks like at ONS 2018

see noise at pipe

Are you interested to see what noise looks like, and to better understand what can be done to reduce it? Visit our stand at ONS 2018 where we will demonstrate our unique service NOISEVISION. By using a technique that is comparable to thermography, but for sound, the noise sources are mapped and visualized in real time. … Read more
