    • Damping mechanisms 

      Akay, Adnan; Carcaterra, A. (Springer, Vienna, 2014)
      The term damping is used to describe the means by which oscillation amplitudes are reduced through irreversible removal of vibratory energy in a mechanical system or a component. Dissipation, on the other hand, refers to ...
    • Vibration absorption using non-dissipative complex attachments with impacts and parametric stiffness 

      Roveri, N.; Carcaterra, A.; Akay, A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009)
      Studies on prototypical systems that consist of a set of complex attachments, coupled to a primary structure characterized by a single degree of freedom system, have shown that vibratory energy can be transported away from ...
