Re: Damping Ratios

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow engineers,

        A few months ago I requested references on the above topic.  At
that time I received replies from Christopher Wright and others.  I also
indicated that when I located other references that would be more
closely related to my needs (wind related dynamics including vortex
shedding) I would post them to the list.

        Such a reference is "ASME STS-1-2000, Steel Stacks".  This
standard provides equations for evaluating damping in a fairly direct
and simple way.  Other references which I found, such as "Wind Effects
on Structures", published by John Wiley and Sons, although very good
were not as direct and easy to use.

        My thanks again to those who replied.
