Abstract: Increasingly, damping is being recognized as an important factor in the design of structures. It is at the same time a property which is relatively poorly defined, more acquired than engineered and obscured by considerable uncertainty. All this, in long term, is an argument for deliberately designing for additional damping. In the interim a summary of the inherent damping values of structures is the subject of this paper.
