DAMPING: ITS APPLICATION IN TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

Roles for damping in vehicle design for noise suppression are identified in isolation of the vehicle from input disturbances, reducing the response to that disturbance, reducing the noise radiated due to that response, and reducing the transmission of noise. Various mechanisms for the dissipation of energy are discussed, and means of adding damping so as to reduce the dynamic response of structural elements, particularly thin sheets, are considered.
