"The object of this thesis is to demonstrate, by the use of a modern digital computer, a fast, efficient method to eliminate or minimize undesirable stress conditions in a multimass vibrating system with multiple excitation. The condition desired is obtained by the addition of an optimum tuned and damped dynamic vibration absorber, for one critical speed only.
Maximum stress is the criteria used for design here and not amplitude as has been used previously by all other authors.
This solution requires the applied torque to be reevaluated as an average torque and a number of half integer harmonics. This method also demonstrates the use of a Holzer Table with complex numbers to account for damping "--Abstract, page ii.
