An adaptive approach of vibrating thin structures is proposed here. The method consists in applying an equivalent adimensional damping ratio to each potential resonance. This ratio is deduced from experimental data obtained in vacuum facility, in relation with frequencies, for several structural technologies. Consequently, it is possible to calculate the structure in a linear non-dissipative context, valid out of resonance bands, and truncated in those bands. Thus, the equivalent damping ratio is directly used to define adimensional resonance truncation bandwith and level. The contribution consists in tested and applied modal methodology and algebraic representations of damping including several dissipations-viscous and internal microfrictions-inducing non-monotonous model. The here aim is to provide realistic recommendations for simple vibrational analysis of aerospace thin structures-panels and sti.
