Some oscillations due to Mode II fracture of concrete are also observed in the stress-displacement curve of the cases with the stiffness proportional damping ratio [[xi].sub.[beta]] lower than 0.05%, but the oscillations were effectively damped out in the cases with stiffness proportional damping ratio equal to or larger than 0.5%.
Note that for lightly damped systems, the natural frequency is not heavily influenced by the damping ratio.
If the modes are not closely spaced and are not heavily damped, then at a given resonant frequency, the structure behaves predominantly as an SDOF system.
(2) A frequency equation and a buckling equation of Timoshenko cantilever beams subjected to both a subtangentially follow force and internal and external damping forces are then derived in the closed form to determine the damped flutter load and divergence load, respectively.
(4) Finally, stability maps of shear deformable and damped Beck columns are newly constructed using the analytical solution, which is compared with the FE solution in the practical range of damping coefficients and shear parameters.
The damped natural frequencies, the modal loss factors, and the frequency response functions of the cylindrical viscoelastic aluminum shells are compared with those of the base thick aluminum panel without a viscoelastic layer.

We next examine the application of our proposed nonlinear transformation approach to obtain approximate solutions of the damped oscillatory systems such as the damped cubic-quintic Duffing equation, the damped general pendulum equation of motion, the damped rational-form elastic term oscillator, and the nonlinear damped cubic term oscillator.
Keck Telescope on Mauna Kea, Djorgovksi and his colleagues stumbled upon an intriguing object: a distant galaxy, with a redshift of 3.15, that qualifies as a damped Lyman-alpha system.
Constrained Layer Damping System--in this system, damping material is placed against the structure and covered with a "constraining layer." Thus, the damping material is sandwiched between the structure to be damped and the constraining layer.
The films can be engineered to be underdamped, critically damped, or overdamped by varying the dopant concentration from 0% to 4%.
The vibrations of linear 1 DOF systems with ordinary damping can be classified as underdamped, critically damped, and overdamped according to the magnitude of the damping coefficient.
