This study is concerned with a linear discrete mechanical system, which is damped by a single viscous damper. The coordinates of the system are assumed to be subject to a linear constraint equation. A simple analytical expression of the characteristic equation of the constrained system is developed. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
