A resonant beam tuned damping device, comprising a flexible beam joined by way of visco-elastic links at the ends, to a vibrating structure, is described. This device has the advantage of relying on the interaction between the beam stiffness and the link stiffness for tuning, rather than on the link stiffness alone as for the conventional tuned damper, so that a weight-saving potential exists. An analysis is developed and verified experimentally.
