In both cases, the non-local nature of the damping is hinted at by the strong negative values on either side of the main diagonal of the matrix. Because the symmetry preserving method uses a constrained optimization approach, numerical accuracy of the fitting procedure might be lower compared to the procedure outlined in Chapter 5 .

Comparison between a typical original and reconstructed transfer function H kj ( ω ) , for k = 11 and j = 24 is shown in Figure 7.11 , based on locally-reacting damping using damping model 1. It is clear that the reconstructed

Thus the symmetry preserving viscous damp- ing matrix identification method developed here does not introduce much error due to the applied constrains in the optimization procedure.

In this section we outline a general method to fit an exponential model to measured data such that the resulting coefficient matrix remains symmetric. We assume that the mass matrix of the structure is known either directly from a finite element model or by means of modal updating. Also suppose that the damping has only one relaxation parameter, so that the matrix of the kernel functions is of the form G ( t ) = μe - μt C (7.28) where μ is the relaxation parameter and C is the associated coefficient matrix. In Chapter 6 a method was proposed to obtain μ and C from measured complex modes and frequencies. This method may yield a C matrix which is not symmetric. In this section we develop a method which
