Paper Abstract

An innovative method for transient response analysis of controlled structures with viscoelastic damping layers is developed. The method yields closed-form transient response by an accurate inverse Laplace transform procedure. Unlike existing techniques, the method does not depend on any orthogonal relations for the system eigensolutions. Another advantage of the method is that the contributions of specific modes in the transient response can be independently evaluated without involving the computation related to other modes. These features render the proposed method efficient in modeling and control of viscoelastically damped flexible structures.
