The displacement of the pendulum head ([theta](t)) is evaluated as a function of time with a damping constant [lamda] using equation 3.
Table 2 gives the corresponding stiffness damping value of the damping constant.
0], considered to be some function of the actual particle mass m, is eliminated from (5) by substituting the damping constant
The velocity-dependent dissipative term is defined according Tsuji [29] and is defined by damping constant [eta].
The damping constant [GAMMA] will be assumed small compared to [[omega].
The loss of energy in each cycle, [DELTA]W, was calculated from the hysteresis loop, and the damping constant, [beta], calculated from [DELTA]W as follows:
For example, changing the value of the partial frequencies alters the perceived length of the bar, whereas changing the damping constant results in a perceived change of material.
Viscous torque is proportional to speed based on the movement of an object through a fluid with a specific damping constant.
The second choice is a semi-active suspension where a damper with variable damping constant is required.
and hence [Epsilon] and [Kappa], are calculated from experimentally determined values of the wave vector and the damping constant.
Other subjects examined include pulsating stars in close binaries, radiative damping constants, and pulsating components in multiple systems.
