Damping

Damping was introduced in Chapter 1 as one of the ‘building blocks’ making up the systems we deal with in structural dynamics, and some of the ways in which it can be generated were discussed. The effects of linear, viscous, damping, on the response of a single-DOF system, were discussed in Chapters 2, 3 and 4. In this chapter, we also look at another form of linear damping, hysteretic damping, and compare it with viscous ...
