Vibrations and noise exist in almost every aspect of our life and are usually undesirable in engineering structures [
]. Vibrations are of concern in large structures such as aircraft either civil (airbus A 380) or military, as well as small structures such as electronics [
]. It is now accepted that nanotechnology can help solve vibration damping and high noise issues through the utilisation of nanomaterials (or media) that dissipate a substantial fraction of the vibration energy that they receive. The mechanisms involved in such materials need to be understood and the relevance to damping identified via both computational and experimental benchmarks.
