Optimal design of linear and nonlinear dynamic vibration absorbers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

An efficient numerical method is applied to obtain optimal parameters for both linear and non-linear damped dynamic vibration absorbers. The minimization of the vibration response has been carried out for damped as well as undamped force excited primary systems with linear and non-linear spring characteristics. Comparison is made with the optimum absorber parameters that are determined by using Den Hartog's classical results in the linear case. Six optimization criteria by which the response is minimized over narrow and broad frequency bands are examined. Pareto optimal solutions of the multi-objective decision making problem are obtained.
