in vibration theory we talk about the following(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)damping coefficient

2)critical damping coefficient

What is the intuitive meaning of the above two

3)damping ratio

why we talk about the ratio of damping coefficient and critical damping coefficient?

Vibration theory says that every material has an inherent damping property(any deep thought on this)?
