Abstract:

The focus of the study was in three areas 1 Development of new and efficient models for accurate prediction of structural damping ability 2 Development and application of new strategies to the associated optimization problem, i.e., damping layer redistribution for maximizing damping subject to static stiffness, stress, weight and frequency constraints and 3 experimental quantification for comparison with analytical predictions.
