This bibliography was compiled as an aid for those people interested in damping research and related fields. It contains a nearly complete list of references on the damping properties of non-metallic materials for the period from 1929 to 1959, together with an index of nomenclature, units, and test methods. Tabulations of the in-phase and out-of-phase components of Youngs modulus and the shear modulus for the various materials are also shown, and graphical representations of experimental data indicate the loss factor values for different materials. These values of the loss factor are compared to those of the representative structural metals. Author, modified-PL.
