- For an underdamped
__vibrational__system, the ratio of the amplitude of a given vibration, to that of the next vibration. For example, the ratio of the amplitude of a__damped oscillation__to the succeeding one. Also called damping coefficient, or damping ratio. - The
__natural logarithm__of the damping factor (1). Also called decrement (3), or logarithmic decrement. - The ratio of the
__nominal impedance__of a speaker, to the total impedance driving it. A higher damping ratio stabilizes the driven speaker, and improves its__performance__. - synonym damping coefficient
