Optimum tuning of a vibration neutralizer for global vibration control

Dayou, J. and Brennan, M.J. (2001) Optimum tuning of a vibration neutralizer for global vibration control Proceedings of the I MECH E Part C Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science,, 215, pp. 933-942.

Record type: Article


This paper is concerned with optimization of the natural frequency of a vibration neutralizer to minimize the global vibration of a structure at a single frequency. The optimization is carried out using a quadratic minimization technique to determine the dynamic stiffness of the control device that is required, and then the optimum resonance frequency of the neutralizer is determined. It is shown that, with the exception of very low frequencies, an optimally adjusted vibration neutralizer can be as effective as an active device at a single frequency. Simulations are presented with a single neutralizer on a beam to facilitate insight into the mechanisms of control.
