Experimental and analytical study of the damping capacity of multilayer steels

  • A. P. Bovsunovskii
Scientific-Technical Section


An experimental and analytical method is presented making it possible from the results for any two test specimens to calculate the damping characteristics of multilayer steel of arbitrary construction, and also to consider the main mass of material and joint zones, the number of them, and their arrangement and orientation. It is shown that the damping capacity of specimens made of multilayer steel is directly proportional to the number of layers and the direction of the joint zones. It is noted that the dissipative properties of layer joint zones is greater, the lower their strength.
