StructuralDampingAssignment Properties

Damping assignment for a structural analysis model

A StructuralDampingAssignment object contains the damping model and its parameters for a structural analysis model. A StructuralModel container has a vector of StructuralDampingAssignment objects in its DampingModels.StructuralDampingAssignments property.

To set damping parameters for your structural model, use the structuralDamping function.
