Transient Dynamic Response of Viscoelastic Structures 720812

A brief discussion of the sources of damping is given and methods of mathematically modeling the liner sources of damping are discussed. It is shown that the most general linear model corresponds to a system that is linearly viscoelastic. The techniques applied in problem formulation are based on finite element models which utilize lumped masses. Transform and state space methods of solution are discussed and compared. Transient solutions for forcing functions of exponential order or less are given.
