Evaluation of Damping Property of Aluminum-Alloyed Cast Iron by Several Methods


Article Preview

In this research, the effect of the aluminum addition to cast iron on damping property was investigated by central vibration method, dynamic mechanical analysis, ultrasonic attenuation measurement and impact sound method. All measurement results indicated that the addition of aluminum improve the damping property of cast iron.
