The behavior of a dynamic damper in a simple structural environment is studied. The structural model used is a stretched string under harmonic loading at the ends. The aim of the analysis is to establish conditions under which maximum damping is obtainable. The unsymmetrical modes are undamped and the analysis is concerned only with the damping of the symmetrical modes.
