Abstract:

A damped vibration absorber has been fitted to HMAS Balikpapan and the responses of the ship and of the absorber were measured in rough seas. The effectiveness of the absorber is shown to be essentially the same as in calmer seas. Recommendations for tuning future absorbers on the basis of sea trials are made. Author
