The damping capacity in martensitic steel under the influence of tempering temperature was investigated. The specimens prepared by machining were analyzed using microstructural observations and x-ray diffractometry. Transmission electron microscopy was used to analyze electropolished thin foils. The damping capacity was found to be greater in higher surface strain amplitude at all tempering temperatures.
