In 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake that is the largest earthquake ever observed occurred. The earthquake had large energy, huge tsunami, long duration time and many aftershocks. Devastated area needed retrieval and revival. However, when electric power was lost, the retrieval delayed. It is necessary to improve seismic proof construction for power plants.
In this paper, authors proposed vibration control by adding dampers for coal-fired power plant and developed it. Fundamental analysis and component test of the damper were conducted.
As the analytical results, characteristic of the damper was searched what kind of performance is more effective for the coal-fired power plants. In the component test, actual scaled prototype of the developed damper was produced and its performance was checked by loading test. As the test results, suitable characteristic of the damper was searched by the analysis. Finally, authors proposed two analytical methods of the developed damper.
