Double pendulum with splitted cables

MAURER damps SOCAR Tower in Baku with 450 t mass, viscous dampers and lead rubber bearings.

Munich, Baku. The capital of Azerbaijan, Baku, is reputed as the city of winds, and is located in a seismic area. Currently the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) builds their new headquarters as a high rise building, in the shape of 2 burning flames (theme “wind and fire”). Due to the slender structure vibrations have a big impact. Which are to be damped. The core element is a double pendulum with 450t mass. The only question: how to place a 10m long pendulum if the architect only permits a maximum height of 7m? The Munich expert of structural protection systems MAURER devised a unique solution: double pendulum with splitted cables.
