The FMT Damping beam is developed for reducing vibrations of steel and aluminium structures, where normal constrained or free layer damping is less effective or difficult to mount. This can be very thick constructions, uneven or dirty surfaces. The Damping beam is optimised for structures with a thickness between 5 and 20 mm.
The damping beams are designed to damp the resonance of first and second order bending waves on the treated construction by constraining the panel motion. The reduction is effective across a broad frequency range, because of the used damping material in beams. Treatment with the damping beams provides energy absorption even for the higher frequencies born in the construction.
