damped system

damped system
is that in which energy is dissipated by forces opposing the vibratory motion. Any means associated with a vibrating system to balance or modulate exciting forces will reduce the vibratory motion, but are not considered to be in the same category as damping. The latter term is applied to an inherent characteristic of the system without reference to the nature of the excitation.
