Damping Simulation

Hi, may I know is it possible to put a damper in my system? The damper can moved according to angle we want. Thank you.

Hi @pkvoon!

You could use hyperelastic material to sustain compression, shear and rotational load. Have you thought about dampers similar to the ones in cars or anything else? Additionally you may use other damping principles:

  • Numerical Damping

  • Material Damping

    • Rayleigh Damping

    • Hysteretic Damping

A bit of the theory can be found here: Damping - Code_Aster
