# Relationship between viscosity and damping

### viscous damping coefficient: Topics by guiadeayuntamientos.info

The simplest case mathematically is that of viscous damping, The relationship between damper force, displacement, and energy dissipated. For example, we use these oscillations to determine the viscosity of . the oscillating mass obeys the equation of motion (2) with the mass m. The simplest case mathematically is that of viscous damping, The relationship between damper force, displacement, and energy dissipated.

If you don't know the density of the sphere, but you know its mass and radius, well then you do know its density. Why are you talking to me? Go back several chapters and get yourself some education. Should I write more?

### Fluid damping of cylindrical liquid storage tanks

A newtonian fluid is one in which the viscosity is just a number. A non-newtonian fluid is one in which the viscosity is a function of some mechanical variable like shear stress or time. Non-newtonian fluids that change over time are said to have a memory. Some gels and pastes behave like a fluid when worked or agitated and then settle into a nearly solid state when at rest.

## Viscous damping

Such materials are examples of shear-thinning fluids. House paint is a shear-thinning fluid and it's a good thing, too. Brushing, rolling, or spraying are means of temporarily applying shear stress. This reduces the paint's viscosity to the point where it can now flow out of the applicator and onto the wall or ceiling.

Once this shear stress is removed the paint returns to its resting viscosity, which is so large that an appropriately thin layer behaves more like a solid than a liquid and the paint does not run or drip. Think about what it would be like to paint with water or honey for comparison. The former is always too runny and the latter is always too sticky. Toothpaste is another example of a material whose viscosity decreases under stress.

Toothpaste behaves like a solid while it sits at rest inside the tube. It will not flow out spontaneously when the cap is removed, but it will flow out when you put the squeeze on it.

Damped Free Vibrations with Viscous Damping-Theory (Equation of motion) [DOM]

Now it ceases to behave like a solid and starts to act like a thick liquid. You don't have to worry about it flowing off the brush as you raise it to your mouth. After the modal decomposition of both components, a viscous damping is introduced to consider the dissipation of mechanical energy.

The damping influences the resulting pressures as well as the amplitude of the convective fluid motion. If the response spectra method is used to calculate the dynamic response of the tank-liquid-system the spectral acceleration is determined directly by the damping ratios.

The damping of the impulsive component is mainly affected by the damping of the shell, and the fluid damping may be neglected. These are typical and well established damping ratios Stevenson The second draft of Eurocode 8, Part 4, e. With the potential equation of the ideal fluid only boundary and interaction conditions normal to the surface of the fluid can be satisfied.

It is not possible to describe the adhesion of a real fluid to the tank wall and bottom by the potential equation. To fulfill the boundary conditions though a one-dimensional shear flow is superimposed on the potential flow of the ideal fluid.

For this purpose at first the Navier—Stokes-equation is applied and simplified with respect to the conditions at the boundary layer of the fluid. A solution of the simplified form of the Navier—Stokes-equation is derived which describes the velocity in the boundary layer.
