damp·ing

 (dăm′pĭng)
n.
The gradual reduction of excessive oscillation, vibration, or signal intensity, and therefore of instability in a mechanical or electrical device, by a substance or some aspect of the device.

damping

(ˈdæmpɪŋ)
n
1. moistening or wetting
2. stifling, as of spirits
3. (Electronics) electronics the introduction of resistance into a resonant circuit with the result that the sharpness of response at the peak of a frequency is reduced
4. (General Engineering) engineering any method of dispersing energy in a vibrating system

Because of overdamping of ultrasonic waves in some samples, the velocities were obtained in two or one direction.
Cases 1-3 show overdamping, Case 4 critical damping, and Cases 5 and 6 underdamping.
The problem of under- and overdamping of the intra-arterial blood pressure monitoring system was first comprehensively studied in 1981, and intensivists and anaesthesiologists were well aware of the problem.
This will be observed by patients as hair-like, fly-like gray linear obscurations to vision that move with ocular saccades and demonstrate an overdamping behavior described by patients as "floating" in and out of their vision.
Critical damping is defined as the threshold between overdamping and underdamping.
It can be found from Figure 7 that overdamping system was better than underdamping and critical damping systems with a stable response to the same step signal.
And the averaged power spectrum displays the relationship between the system, the cosine signal, and the asymmetric dichotomous noise for different underdamping and overdamping coefficients, from which we can find SR phenomenon.
Duffin [4] called a quadratic eigenproblem (4.1) an overdamped network, if A, B, and C are positive semidefinite and the so called overdamping condition
On the contrary, the Raman intensities of [E.sub.2] (low) and [E.sub.2] (high) modes decrease with increasing values of x and at x = 0.54; these modes cease to exist due to overdamping by the substitutional disorder of Ga atoms.
