Study of Modeling of Substructure Damping Matrices 720813

Several methods are presented for developing proportional substructure damping matrices from modal test data. Examples demonstrate the significance of the nonuniqueness of the resulting proportional damping matrices. Several alternate modal synthesis procedures are presented for the systematic calculation of system modal damping from substructure damping information. The relative merits of these procedures are discussed, and one procedure is recommended.
