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

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.

Pipe vibration assessment

Pipe failure - Crack in pipe due to vibration

Background Having control over vibration might seem like a daunting task. On one side there are many sources to vibration, ie. pulsation, flow, external forces, machinery. On the other hand, there are many mechanical structures that can be put into motion, ie. internal components, pipes, main structure, valves. When you know that Vibration = Force * … Read more

Apropos resonance…

When working with vibration and sound, resonance is a quite vital thing to always keep in consideration. Even when not into our field of business, most people have tried out acoustic resonance – when blowing into a bottle, making a flute. Or, felt the power of mechanical resonance and perhaps seen dramatic consequences of it … Read more
