An equivalent alternative formulation of the usual Duncan Method of solution of a system of general viscous damping is discussed. For the solution of systems this alternative statement of the problem is no better and is in fact potentially inferior to the standard method. A potentially important application however removes a significant limitation in the implementation of the local modification procedures of Weissenburger and Pomazal.
