It is becoming increasingly important to add damping to structures for vibration and noise control purposes. Most damping falls in two categories: passive damping and active damping. Recently, a new subset of damping was created by combining passive and active damping, thereby producing a hybrid damping treatment. This paper is a review of these damping treatments including the recent advances in the hybrid damping using active constrained layer damping (ACLD) treatment.
