This article presents exact algebraic solutions to optimization problems of a double-mass dynamic vibration absorber (DVA) attached to a viscous damped primary system. The series-type double-mass DVA was optimized using three optimization criteria (the H∞ optimization, H2 optimization, and stability maximization criteria), and exact algebraic solutions were successfully obtained for all of them. It is extremely difficult to optimize DVAs when there is damping in the primary system. Even in the optimization of the simpler single-mass DVA, exact solutions have been obtained only for the H2 optimization and stability maximization criteria. For H∞ optimization, only numerical solutions and an approximate perturbation solution have been obtained. Regarding double-mass DVAs, an exact algebraic solution could not be obtained in this study in the case where a parallel-type DVA is attached to the damped primary system. For the series-type double-mass DVA, which was the focus of the present study, an exact algebraic solution was obtained for the force excitation system, in which the disturbance force acts directly on the primary mass; however, an algebraic solution was not obtained for the motion excitation system, in which the foundation of the system is subjected to a periodic displacement. Because all actual vibration systems involve damping, the results obtained in this study are expected to be useful in the design of actual DVAs. Furthermore, it is a great surprise that an exact algebraic solution exists even for such complex optimization problems of a linear vibration system.
