1 Introduction to Single Degree of Freedom, Free Damped Vibration

Undamped systems make for good educational examples. Real systems always dissipate energy as they move. This dissipation of energy dampens the system motion. If the damping is very small then an undamped system may be accurately approximated by an undamped system.

Energy dissipation occurs through friction. Often multiple kinds of friction are present but in each operation mode for a system a certain form of friction is dominant. The forms of friction are viscous, Coulomb, and hysteretic.
