Abstract:The present paper proposes a new procedure to determine the optimal parameters of a dynamic vibration absorber (DVA), considering both damped and undamped primary system. The DVA design is formulated as an optimization problem in which the objective function is constructed based on Den Hartog's equal-peak method. The DVA parameters are selected to minimize the response of the primary system when it is subjected to harmonic force or base motion. Firstly, we propose a numerical strategy based on Frequency Respon… Show more
