Damping is the reduction or elimination of the amplitude of an electrical or mechanical energy’s wave. In most cases, damping converts electrical or mechanical energy into thermal energy. In layman’s terms, damping reduces or eliminates vibrations, movement, or noise by converting the vibration, movement, or noise energy into heat. Because vibration, movement, and noise have adverse effects on equipment and individuals in an industrial environment, damping is used to increase the lifespan of equipment and/or improve the safety in an individual’s working environment.
