Usually this damping material is coated on the surface of TCS; through the internal friction of coated particle and interface friction of the coating and metallic substrate, the structural vibration energy is finally transformed into heat energy which will be dissipated in the composite structural system [9,10], so that the effect of restraining and reducing vibration of TCS can be realized.
