To verify that the friction damper used to high buildings as a kind of control technology of wind vibration can reduce dynamic behaviors of PTTs effectively, slip dampers in this paper are proposed to absorb the energy through relatively frictional movement of slip dampers applied to main post of a PTT (Power Transmission Tower) when dynamic displacement of a PTT occurs. The result of dynamic analysis is presented to determine the capacity of the damper system by controlling damping ratio on the resonance condition. It is observed that by installing slip dampers at a PTT the strain amplitudes of the main post caused by wind load are effectively reduced. Therefore it is shown that the proposed damper satisfies the strengthened wind-load design standards, and its efficacy was also validated experimentally by field testing.
