Noise and Vibration Control

What is damping?

Damping is a phenomenon by which mechanical energy is dissipated (usually converted as thermal energy) in dynamic systems.

2.1 Types of damping

Three primary mechanisms of damping Internal damping of material Structural damping at joints and interface Fluid damping through fluid -structure interactions Two types of external dampers can be added to a mechanical system to improve its energy dissipation characteristics: Active dampers require external source of power Passive dampers Does not Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee

Noise and Vibration Control MATERIAL (Internal) Damping Internal damping originates from energy dissipation associated with: --microstructure defects (grain boundaries & impurities), -thermo elastic effects (caused by local temperature gradients) -eddy-current effects (ferromagnetic materials), -dislocation motion in metals, etc. Types of Internal damping: -Viscoelastic damping -Hysteretic damping

2.2 Structural damping

Structural damping is a result of the mechanical-energy dissipation caused by rubbing friction resulting from relative motion between components and by impacting or intermittent contact at the joints in a mechanical system or structure Energy dissipation caused by rubbing is usually represented by a Coulomb-friction model. Energy dissipation caused by impacting, however, should be determined from the coefficient of restitution of the two members that are in contact.

2.3 Fluid Damping

Consider a mechanical component moving in a fluid medium. The direction of relative motion is shown parallel to the y-axis in Figure , Local displacement of the element relative to the surrounding fluid is denoted by q(x,z,t). The resulting drag force per unit area of projection on the x-z plane is denoted by fd .This resistance is the cause of mechanical-energy dissipation in fluid damping. It is usually expressed as

2.5 Measurement of damping

Damping can be represented by various parameters (such as specified damping capacity loss factor Q-factor and damping ratio) a and models ( such as viscous, hysteretisis , structural and fluid) A major difficulty arises because usually it is not possible to isolate various t types of damping( e.g. material. structural, and fluid) from an overall measurement. Further more, damping measurements must be conducted under actual operating conditions for them to be realistic'

27/54

Noise and Vibration Control

There are two general ways by which damping measurements can be made:
1. Time-Response Method and 2. frequency-response methods.

The basic difference between the two types of measurements is that the first type uses a time-response record of the system to estimate damping, where as the second type uses a frequency-response record.

2.6 Slip / interface damping mechanism

In many practical applications, damping is generated by the interface of two sliding surface e.g. : bearings , gears ,screws and guide ways Interface damping was formally considered by Da Vinci in the early 1500s and again by columb by 1700s
