Suppressing vibrations in mechanical systems, usually described by second-order dynamical models, is a challenging task in mechanical engineering in terms of computational resources even nowadays. One remedy is structure-preserving model order reduction to construct easy-to-evaluate surrogates for the original dynamical system having the same structure. In our work, we present an overview of recently developed structure-preserving model reduction methods for second-order systems. These methods are based on modal and balanced truncation in different variants, as well as on rational interpolation. Numerical examples are used to illustrate the effectiveness of all described methods.
