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

For example, soft viscoelastic layers in viscoelastic sandwich structures are provided as the damping component in order to improve dynamic response [2].
In An (2015) [22], a numerical damping system is required in a mesoscale FE modelling to eliminate the dynamic effects arising from concrete cracking in the damaging process; otherwise it is impossible to achieve a satisfactory result under quasi-static loads.
Often a damping ratio is assumed when performing the FE structural analysis.
With this method, input damping is accurate and high-speed calculation is achieved.
Building on its history of game changing innovations in the commercial trucking industry, Firestone Industrial Products, LLC (FSIP) (Hall 5, Stand B32) will introduce a revolutionary air damping technology at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show, Sept.
This paper reports that estimation accuracy of suspension stroke velocity is increased by considering the damping force delay characteristics to an observer.
According to the linear stability theory of nonconservative systems, external damping tends to increase flutter loads but columns under small internal damping lose their stability at the flutter load drastically deceased.
To study these small amplitude oscillations, one of the damping mechanism nonadiabaticities has been extensively studied because linear nonadiabatic magnetoacoustic waves have interesting physical effects such as time and spatial damping of the disturbances.
Design of robust damping controllers for the interconnected power system is very sensitive in order to suppress oscillations [1].
Damping materials are designed to reduce the noise in the interior of a car by weakening or eliminating vibrations that are transferred to its body and cause unpleasant buzzing sounds.
ABSTRACT: In this paper, results of an experimental study to investigate the equivalent viscous damping (EVD) of the concrete reinforced with metallic fibers in mono and hybrid form have been presented.
