Damping Techniques for Noise and Vibration Control
The Official Blog of Polymer Technologies, Inc.
by Polymer Technologies Inc.
1y ago
Damping is one of the most effective methods of controlling noise and vibration. It is a process that converts vibrational energy into heat, eliminating the vibrational energy through friction and other processes. Increasing damping or stiffness can both reduce resonant vibration and the resulting noise by preventing the vibration from travelling through the structure. Rubber … Read more Damping Techniques for Noise and Vibration Control The post Damping Techniques for Noise and Vibration Control appeared first on The Official Blog of Polymer Technologies, Inc ..read more
