Abstract

In this paper we investigate the dynamics of tuned mass absorber with additional viscous damper and inerter attached to the pendulum. The devices are used to damp out oscillations of non-linear Duffing oscillator. Analysis of how these devices influence the dynamics of tuned mass absorber and its damping properties is shown. We calculate the detailed bifurcation diagrams and show how by changing the parameters of damper and inerter one can eliminate dangerous dynamic instabilities from the systems. Finally, in the last section we present an optimization of TMA's parameters in order to achieve best efficiency in damping of the main body vibrations.
