Abstract : The principle of the dynamic vibration absorber was applied to reduce in a defined manner transient vibrations of a one degree of freedom system. Ten rules were developed which relate the position of the roots of the characteristic equation to the physical parameters. The concept of the 'relative' and the 'absolute influence position' is introduced; these new definitions refer to a particular position of the roots of the characteristic equation when only the spring constant, or, respectively, the spring constant and the damping coefficient between the masses are variable.
