Author Affiliations +
In this paper, recent results of ongoing studies into the effectiveness and predictability of particle damping are discussed. Efforts have concentrated on characterizing and predicting the behavior of a wide range of potential particle materials, shapes, and sizes in the laboratory environment, as well as at elevated temperature. Methodologies used to generate data and extract the characteristics of the nonlinear damping phenomena are illustrated with interesting test results. Experimental results are compared to predictions from analytical simulations performed with an explicit code, based on the particle dynamics method, that has been developed in support of this work.
