The researchers conclude that the bounces increase because the zinc oxide forms tiny bridges within the zinc material, which decreases the mechanical damping of the battery.
Combining physical properties such as high mechanical damping with heat insulation, cellular or foam-like materials have a wide range of applications in the automotive and aerospace industries.
DMA tests were performed using the TA Instruments Model DMA 983, which offers a rapid and sensitive means to simultaneously obtain an elastic modulus (stiffness) and a mechanical damping (toughness) for materials.
The mechanical damping systems of the HSK-C allow for fast, easy and efficient too[ changing operations without incurring significant downtime in production, CRP says.

The job of keeping its potent power in check is taken care of by Audi's unique permanent four-wheel drive combined with Dynamic Ride Control an electronically governed, mechanical damping system.
This car comes with Dynamic Ride Control, an electronically-controlled mechanical damping system which monitors road conditions and cornering forces and continually adjusts the suspension to maintain balance in all situations, while at the same time keeping a supple ride.
Dynamic mechanical properties (storage moduli E[prime], dynamic loss moduli E[double prime], and mechanical damping tan [Delta]) of the compounds were measured using a dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA 980 Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer manufactured by TA Instruments).
The storage modulus, E[prime] and mechanical damping, tan [Delta] of the compounds change with dispersion time as shown in Fig.
introduced last fall the newest versions of its Hydrosnubber mechanical damping control device, a line of accessories designed for use with ultrasonic welders to permit accurately controlled part contact speed and improved actuator stroke settings.
Nasdaq:NUFO), a leading provider of photonics and microwave technology solutions, today announced the introduction of a variety of new products including easy-to-use broadband 40-GHz amplifiers, versatile RF sources for their line of electro-optic phase and amplitude modulators, patented closed-loop Picomotor(TM) actuators and Intelligent closed-loop Picomotor(TM) drivers, and a new line of high-quality optical workstations and breadboards which deliver the rigidity and mechanical damping required for the most demanding photonics applications from the laboratory to the manufacturing floor.
