This paper investigates the principal properties of time varying operation modes for tuneable vibration absorbers mounted on distributed structures to reduce vibrations produced by stationary broad frequency band disturbances. The study considers a practical application where an electro-mechanical tuneable vibration absorber, comprising a seismic coil-magnet linear transducer, is fixed on a thin walled circular duct flexible structure. The absorber is commanded to either periodically switch or continuously vary the stiffness and damping of the elastic suspension holding the moving magnet. As a result, the tuneable vibration absorber fundamental natural frequency and damping ratio are respectively switched or swept to cyclically reduce the resonant response of multiple flexural natural modes of the duct structure. The study analytically shows, and confirms with simulations and experiments, that the vibration control produced by a simple “blind sweep” operation mode of the tuneable vibration absorber does not differ significantly from the (sub)optimal performance attainable via a switching operation mode.
