Did you know that you can add a metal bar (with a weight on the end) to a machine that is experiencing high vibration and that vibration will be reduced, potentially dramatically? Yes, it is true! “Tuned absorbers” and “tuned mass dampers” are widely used in a variety of applications, from multi-story buildings to small industrial pumps, to minimize vibration. It is a tool that every vibration analyst should be aware of as it can help solve problems that you may struggle to solve otherwise. In this presentation, Jason will explain the basic principles, explain the design criteria, and provide a series of examples where they have been applied successfully.
