Internal Friction (Q-1)

We use two distinct methods to measure internal friction:

1) Logarithmic Decrement Method

- based on the waveform exponential decay envelope

The amplitude of vibration of an impulse-excited solid follows an exponential decay envelope, given by:

2) Full Width Half Maximum (FWHM) Method

- based on the broadening of the spectrum peaks
