This book presents a practical approach to the application of viscoelastic damping materials to control vibration and noise problems in industrial structures, machinery, computer machinery, and vehicles. Assuming a basic understanding of mechanical engineering, the text covers implementation of theory, including material properties, dynamic structural response, design procedures and practical applications. Based on an understanding of both the properties of materials and the vibrational response of structures it considers individual structures and the damping materials properties simultaneously. Included is an extensive collection of data sheets for a large number of useful damping materials.
