A novel rotational inertia damper for amplifying fluid resistance

Embed Cite

An inerter is a two-terminal mechanical device with the property of generating a resisting force that is proportional to the relative acceleration across its terminals. Kaiming Bi discusses rotational inertia damper (RID) that is capable of generating a significant damping force to control the vibrations of offshore platforms. Image courtesy of Kaiming Bi.
