In general, it is not possible to obtain total motion absorption of a certain degree of freedom in a harmonically excited damped system by passive control. This paper presents a method of obtaining total absorption in viscously damped system by active control, including time delay, which is unavoidable in digital controlled system. The control is applied on one degree of freedom and the absorption is achieved at another point. This study is carried out by both complex and real analyses. The necessary and sufficient condition for obtaining total absorption is given. Examples demonstrate the various results.
