The dynamic vibration absorber is a kind of mechanical device with inertia, stiffness, and damping. Once connected to a given structure or machine, it is capable of absorbing vibratory energy. As a result, the primary system can be protected from excessively high vibration levels. In this paper, we deal with classical Den Hartog’s model to clarify the known results and improve the mathematical component of this approach. We suggest the optimal choice of absorber parameters, which is slightly different and more general analytical approach. The comparison of two methods of optimization is carried out, and the corresponding error of calculus is estimated.
