Abstract : This paper describes some of the current solution methodology for finite element analysis of problems in vibration damping, and addresses several common questions regarding the differences between methods and computer programs. The discussion is intended for non-specialists in finite element methods, and focuses on basic questions and principles in the use of finite elements for damping design and analysis. (Author)
