Establishing Non-Linear Damping Characteristics of Structures from Non-Stationary Response Time-Histories

This paper presents a method for obtaining measurements of non-linear characteristics in the damping of real structures. The use of the random decrement technique is presented and its application to some full-scale structures detailed. The mathematical background to the technique is detailed and the practical avoidance of problems with its use noted. Professor A.P. Jeary
