Optimum parameters of a dynamic vibration absorber of non-traditional form have been derived for suppressing vibration of a single degree-of-freedom system due to ground motion. The reduction of transmission of motion from the support to the mass of the structure is compared for the cases of using the traditional and the proposed dynamic absorbers. Under the optimum tuning condition of the absorbers, it is proved analytically that the proposed absorber provides a larger suppression of resonant vibration amplitude of the primary system excited by ground motion than the traditional absorber.
