Abstract:- Vibration dampers are commonly used to reduce the shedding-induced response of chimneys. In this paper, principle of the damping system is discussed. Mass and stiffness of the damper are calculated. Amplitude of the top of chimney during vortex shedding is calculated treating chimney as a single degree of freedom system. Dimensions of dampers are discussed. For example for a steel chimney of height 50 meter & diameter 1.5 meter, mass of damper is 169 kg. Finally, some examples of damping systems are presented
