This work considers the use of a double-ended cantilever beam as a distributed parameter dynamic vibration absorber applied to a single-degree-of-freedom system in the presence of sinusoidal forces. The problem is analyzed exactly and by an energy approach using a single mode approximation for the cantilever beam. The results for both techniques compare favorably and damping is introduced in the form of a complex beam modulus. Optimal tuning and optimal damping parameters are found for a given ratio of absorber mass to main mass.
