Abstract : Damping was investigated by means of the introduction into the structure of distributed external resistances with use of natural elements of the actual construction. Such a method may be called structural damping, whose main features are: (1) damping will be attained by means of external resistances appearing in compound elements of the construction during its oscillation; (2) damping of oscillations is realized by distributed (along surface of elements of construction) forces of resistances; and (3) for creation of damping effect, natural elements of the construction are used.
