The researchers found that the damping capacity in some cases even exceeded that of natural silks.
Usually, the damping capacity was evaluated by loss tangent (tan [PHI]), loss factor ([eta]), specific damping capacity ([psi]), logarithmic decrement ([delta]), and inverse quality factor ([Q.
Hysteresis energy and damping capacity of flexural elements constructed with different concrete strengths.
Other topics include the high damping capacity of a binary TiNi shape memory alloy, silicone coatings filled with carbon nanotubes, the synthesis of electron-transporting compounds, and thin films prepared by magnetron sputtering.

Therefore, various design and technological methods are used to reduce the detrimental effect of consequences of these regimes, especially the increase of the damping capacity as a means of restricting the maximum resonance stresses of the most heavily stressed structural members.
Prattville, Alabama, said that magnesium alloys have high strength-to-weight ratios and relatively good electrical and thermal conductivity, as well as high damping capacity.
For small and average weight equipment and pipe networks, SERB supports and devices may be adjusted, after installation, in point of stiffness and damping capacity so to "tune" the entire assembly to shift from the resonance range.
With hardness of 55 Shore D, however, hytrel cuts angular misalignment ratings in half, and damping capacity is low.
The damping capacity of ductile cast iron is better than that of steel due to the presence of graphite within the microstructure.
In particular, it is possible to identify a threshold frequency during periodic loading, near which the damping capacity of the SMP is strongly affected by an increasing shape memory strain.
