The normal mode method is used to investigate the reduction in the steady-state response of a simply supported cylindrical shell when conventional absorbers are attached to the shell. Two types of excitation are considered: (a) a single radial harmonic force, and (b) a harmonic pressure distributed over the shell surface. The effect upon response of varying the absorber parameters is studied. Optimum conditions for specific cases are obtained and compared with those required to minimize response when absorbers are added to cantilever beams and to the classical single degree of freedom system.
