Abstract:

Some of the major topics in the area of dynamic damping are described. A list of typical problems where damping is of primary importance is listed. Typical structural components are considered, and a brief account on the effect of materials is given. Mathematical models and intermodal coupling is also examined, and the extreme difficulty to have reasonably accurate informations from them is emphasized. Possible philosophies of ground tests and flight tests are finally discussed. Author
