Fall 1999 Seminar Series
Modeling Damping in Mechanical Engineering Structures
During the design of engineering structures, numerical models are used to
ensure satisfactory dynamic behavior. Natural frequencies, modes, frequency and
time responses, are dependent on damping which can be quite difficult to model.
This conference presents some mechanical engineering structures studied at
Laboratoire de Mecanique des Structures whose damping was due to concentrated
element, to distributed elements or to several simultaneous effects and
discusses methods employed to take into account damping. Applications shown are
mostly in the field of machinery dynamics.
