**Damping**— Classical mechanics Newton s Second Law History of classical mechanics … Wikipedia**damping**— damp·ing (dămʹpĭng) n. The capacity built into a mechanical or electrical device to prevent excessive correction and the resulting instability or oscillatory conditions. * * * In physics, the restraint of vibratory motion, such as mechanical… … Universalium**Damping torque**— A damping force is one which acts on the moving system of the instrument only when it is moving and always opposes its motion. Such stabilizing or damping force is necessary to bring the pointer to rest quickly, otherwise due to inertia of the… … Wikipedia**force**— [1] A push or a pull that causes objects to change their motion. [2] It is a vector quantity, with a particular direction and forces must be combined with special vector rules. [3] In the SI (international system of units), it is measured in… … Dictionary of automotive terms**Force-based algorithms**— Force based or force directed algorithms are a class of algorithms for drawing graphs in an aesthetically pleasing way. Their purpose is to position the nodes of a graph in two dimensional or three dimensional space so that all the edges are of… … Wikipedia**Damping ratio**— Classical mechanics Newton s Second Law History of classical mechanics … Wikipedia**damping**— 1) (energy absorption) a shock absorber characteristic which is determined by the orifice pattern of the shock absorber. Dashpot (spike force), conventional (constant force), progressive (increasing force) and self compensating (various force)… … Mechanics glossary**Force**— For other uses, see Force (disambiguation). See also: Forcing (disambiguation) Forces are also described as a push or pull on an object. They can be due to phenomena such as gravity, magnetism, or anything that might cause a mass to accelerate … Wikipedia**complex damping**— damping in which the force opposing the vibratory motion is variable, but not proportional, to the velocity. In the field of aircraft flutter and vibration, complex damping is also used to denote a specific type of damping in which the damping… … Mechanics glossary**Damping matrix**— In applied mathematics, a damping matrix is a matrix corresponding to any of certain systems of linear ordinary differential equations. A damping matrix is defined as follows. If the system has n degrees of freedom un and is under application of… … Wikipedia
