Based on the above results, it is concluded that the addition of 328 and 329 phases reduced the damping capacity at the glass transition range of the composites due to the dilution of TPU matrix but increased the damping property when the TPU matrix is at elastomeric state because of the interfacial frictions between the matrix and UV-absorbents.
The damping capacity of tire rubber is much higher because of its high elasticity as compared to soil.
In addition to its strength, the fibres also show very high damping capacity, meaning that they can absorb large amounts of energy, similar to a bungee cord.
However, for their low damping capacity, additional damping treatments are usually to be applied.
The Periotest device is designed to evaluate tooth mobility and implant stability based on damping capacity assessment [20].
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.sup.-1]) (33).
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.
Brown of the Magnesium Assistance Group Inc., 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.
