Paper Abstract

Focused research in the area of Multi-Particle Impact Damping (MPID) has resulted in new methods of characterization and prediction. An analytical method has been developed, based on the particle dynamics method, that uses characterized particle damping data to predict damping in structural systems. A methodology to design particle damping for dynamic structures will be discussed. The complete design methodology has been validated in proof-of-methodology testing on a structural component in the laboratory.
