MSD Multiple Shear Damper
The MSD is a damper that makes use of the viscous shearing resistance of a high viscosity material. During the sudden motion caused by an earthquake it generates a large resisting force to disperse seismic energy.
MSD is a box-shaped device, so, no need for additional installation space.
It is effective for absorbing a wide range of vibrations, from wind vibration to violent shaking caused by strong earthquakes.
MSD can be designed to suit the scale of the building and vibration damping required.
No maintenance is required as the viscous fluid remains stable over many years, and there is absolutely no leakage of fluid.
