Damping

Damping refers to when energy is withdrawn from sound. This usually happens through dissipation by converting the sound energy to heat through...[more]

Deflection

Deflection refers to the behaviour of a building material under load and is differentiated into linear, progressive and regressive material behaviour.[more]

Dynamic stiffness

Dynamic stiffness describes material behaviour under changing loads. It is the ratio between the acting dynamic force and the resulting deflection.[more]
