Damping Technology is employed in high rise buildings to absorb various vibration energies which are induced in a building due to wind flow & seismic actions.  wind load analysis and earthquake analysis of a building results greater dimensions of load bearing components. by implementing damping technology we can minimize the volume of concreting or fabrications. In case of MR DAMPERS, the magneto rheological fluids absorb the vibrating energies by changing their physical state thus providing resistance against slendering.

I request all the experts in this field, to share their views, to enrich our range of knowledge.

Damping in the structure needs research because till it is not quantified while designing we take some percentage value of critical damping

I would like to repeat once again the words of Mr.  Omkar Kulkarni, Internal Auditor, Minilec (India) Pvt Ltd . Yes, in India minorities are far more better than any other country. If you look at the trend at the "poll results" it will be clearer that...
It has been a hot topic for the past few days/months whether we have recovered from the downturn or we are getting saturated in case of construction industry  
I think up to some stage we study only for "knowledge" "money". And after earning conveniently, if we continue to study, this is only for " knowledge"
