NASA Langley’s Compact Vibration Damper

Langley Damper 0030

NASA Langley Research Center’s compact vibration damper provides superior performance when compared with conventional devices. Because of its design, it is also easily tunable, scalable, and lightweight. Beyond aerospace applications, the system has uses in other structures where reducing vibrations is vital, such as wind turbines, skyscrapers, and smokestacks.

Langley Research Center (LaRC) is the oldest of NASA's field centers, located in Hampton, Virginia. It directly borders Poquoson, Va. and Langley Field. LaRC focuses primarily on aeronautical research.
