In the paper, behaviour of a temporary steel grandstand equipped with two different types of bracing system has been analysed through the numerical study. A typical solution concerning application of a diagonal tubular members has been compared with elements proposed by authors and called polymer dampers. A polymer element consists of two L-shape steel members bonded with polymer mass. The aim of the paper is to verify the effectiveness of polymer dampers in reduction of vibrations of temporary metal grandstands subjected to dynamic loads induced by spectators. The results of the study show that the response of structure equipped with two analysed bracing systems is different variable. The application of the polymer dampers results in substantial reduction in structural vibrations. Moreover, the decrease in values of accelerations of the grandstand with polymer dampers allows to maintain comfort of spectators at an acceptable level.
