Abstract : The objective of the Specialists' Meeting was to make available pertinent information and reliable rules to account for the effects of structural damping on problems of elastic stability. The most general aspects of structural damping were covered; physical roots, mathematical formulation, damping characteristics of aerospace structural components, effects on dynamic response, investigation of damping in composites and effects in joints.
