This guide describes the current methodologies, including apparatus, procedures, and measurement accuracies, for the testing of vibration dampers. In addition, some basic guidance is also provided to inform the potential user of a given method's strengths and weaknesses. Due to the variety of vibration damper designs, more than one test method may be required to obtain the necessary information on dissipation characteristics of vibration dampers and damping systems. This guide assists in the standardization of the methods included as well as results in providing a more detailed perspective in obtaining reliable information on a vibration damper's dissipation characteristics. Please note that the methodologies and procedures incorporated in this guide are applicable to indoor testing only and are in no way associated with the field testing of vibration dampers. By using the appropriate technique(s) outlines, data can be acquired that can be utilized in the application of dampers; however, this topic is considered beyond the scope of the guide. In general, this guide provides an improved understanding of vibration testing procedures.
