Abstract

The internal friction energy loss of vibration is an important indicator showing the vibrational performance of wood. This paper analyzed vibration signals based on the fast Fourier transform spectrum. The logarithmic average, logarithmic regression slope, and exponential function fitting methods were used to calculate the attenuation coefficient of friction energy of wood vibration in the full time and different time periods. The correlations of δ gained from different methods were compared and analyzed. The results showed that the linear correlations between different methods were significant in the entire period. The values obtained using the logarithmic average and logarithmic regression slope methods were similar. For different time periods, the rate of amplitude decay decreased over time. The values obtained using the logarithmic average method had the smallest fluctuation. In different time periods, the logarithmic average and logarithmic regression slope methods showed a significant linear correlation. However, the exponential function fitting method showed a low correlation with the logarithmic average and logarithmic regression slope methods.
