Hi All,

Just wondering whether anyone really gets the concept behind damping?

Because the text book definition is really complicated... I don`t really get it ?

Cheers

"In physics, damping is any effect that tends to reduce the amplitude of vibrations. In mechanics, the internal friction may be one of the causes of such damping effect." source: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damping
