GetRayleighDampingCoefficients Method (ICWDampingOptions)

Gets the Rayleigh damping coefficients.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub GetRayleighDampingCoefficients( _
   ByRef DAlpha As System.Double, _
   ByRef DBeta As System.Double _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWDampingOptions
Dim DAlpha As System.Double
Dim DBeta As System.Double
instance.GetRayleighDampingCoefficients(DAlpha, DBeta)
void GetRayleighDampingCoefficients( 
   out System.double DAlpha,
   out System.double DBeta
void GetRayleighDampingCoefficients( 
&   [Out] System.double DAlpha,
&   [Out] System.double DBeta


Mass coefficient
Stiffness coefficient


This method works only if ICWDampingOptions::DampingType is set to swsDampingType_e.swsDampingType_Rayleigh.
