Q: Is a damping ratio a dimensionless measure describing how oscillations in a system decay after a disturbance? ¶
Q: Is a damping ratio dimensionless? ¶
A: Yes, and being the ratio of two coefficients of identical units.
Q: Is a damping ratio a parameter? ¶
A: Yes, and usually denoted by ζ , that characterizes the frequency response of a second order ordinary differential equation.
Q: Is a damping ratio a measure of describing how rapidly the oscillations decay from one bounce to the next? ¶
