Paper Abstract

This paper is concern with the effects of edge element symmetry on the Enhanced Active Constrained Layer (EACL) treatment. The research characterizes the relationship among the edge element stiffness distribution, the strain field of the base structure, and the system active, passive, and hybrid damping abilities. The results could provide good insights and guidelines for EACL designers.
