This paper considers mechanical behaviour of a titanium
structure with regards to the determination of basic dynamic properties.
A numerical example is analysed for titanium shell
structural models (the basic finite element has 20 degrees of freedom), with the
equivalent bending stiffness in the basic plane of motion, primarily with
regards to structural damping.
The obtained results show that structural damping of the
considered titanium model is somewhat lower than that of the damping of models
based on other analysed materials with different specific modulus of elasticity
and in structures with a different nondimensional coefficient of structural
Results are presented in tabular and graphical form.
