Homework Statement


I have been searching online but I am unable to find a site that explicitly states the Den Hartog criteria for a tuned mass damper.

What is the Den Hartog criteria?

Look at figure 1, it shows M and m are distinct masses so M is not in fact M+m

I am not sure on how I would design a tuned mass damper from the paper though. I am trying to design one for a system with ##M = 55## kg and a tuned mass damper weighing ##5.5## kg. The natural frequency of the system is ##\omega_n = 12.061## and the forcing function has ##\omega = 183.26##.
