viscous damping

viscous damping

[′vis·kəs ′damp·iŋ]
(mechanical engineering)
A method of converting mechanical vibrational energy of a body into heat energy, in which a piston is attached to the body and is arranged to move through liquid or air in a cylinder or bellows that is attached to a support.
