In physics, damping is any effect that tends to reduce the amplitude of oscillations in an oscillatory system. Inspired by this, the authors present a new traffic allocation algorithm for wireless networks in order to limit the packet delay variance. They refer to their algorithm as the Damping Based Traffic Allocation algorithm (DBTA). DBTA computes the queuing delay and queuing delay variance, configures system parameters and finally reduces the amplitude of delay variations. They realize DBTA based on Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol.
