Abstract

The Oberst Beam Method is widely used for the measurement of the mechanical properties of damping materials. This method is a classical method based on a multilayer cantilever beam which consists of a base beam and one or two layers of other materials. The base beam is almost always made of a lightly damped material such as steel and aluminum.
