Abstract  Based on the uniform, helical and spiral domain-wall magnetic configurations, the excited spin waves are studied with emphasis on the role of damping. We find that the damping closes the gap of dispersion, and greatly influences the dispersion in the long-wave region for the spin waves of spiral wall and helical structure. For the uniform configuration, the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction determines the modification of dispersion by the damping. Furthermore, we investigate the interaction between spin waves and a moving spiral domain wall. In the presence of damping, the amplitude of spin wave can increase after running across the wall for small wave numbers. Driving by the spin waves, the wall propagates towards the spin-wave source with an increasing velocity. Unlike the case without damping, the relation between the wall velocity and the spin-wave frequency depends on the position of wall.
