Abstract

Particle dampers have been used for many years to reduce vibrations of machines and small structures. Ancient monuments like classical columns are in danger of collapsing in areas of high seismicity and need to be protected with methods that will not affect their overall appearance. Particle dampers can replace original drums looking exactly the same while inside they are hollow and contain particles. This paper examines the ability of particle dampers to reduce the response of classical columns to dynamic excitations. The experimental results indicate that particle dampers can effectively reduce the response of classical columns if they are designed properly.
