Abstract

An experimental technique for determining the internal loss factors (damping) of structures was studied. The power input method (PIM) coupled with the use of a laser vibrometer allowed for quick, and accurate measurements of loss factors of flat panel type structures. The effectiveness of this method was shown through a case study involving laminated and tempered vehicle glass windows.
