Paper Abstract

Vibration dampers and dynamic absorbers are widely used in various engineering problems. This paper presents a new concept of vibration control via a distributed damper composed of an elastic bar and a dissipative boundary conditioner in its configuration. The distributed inertia and stiffness of the elastic bar enables the damper to provide wide-band damping augmentation. Preliminary results show several advantages of the distributed damper over its lumped counterparts.
