Damping matrix

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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 m damping forces.

Each force can be expressed as follows:

It yields in matrix form;

where C is the damping matrix composed by the damping coefficients:
