Improved viscoelastic damping for earthquake-resistant wood structures
In this work viscoelastic polymeric damping material was studied for its ability to damp out vibrations in wood structures (houses). This is accomplished by placing a thin layer of the material between wood stud and sheathing material. Damping performance of three individual polymers was obtained an...
