An overview of the recent development of tuned vibration absorbers (TVAs) for vibration and noise suppression is presented. The paper summarizes some popular theory for analysis and optimal tuning of these devices, discusses various design configurations, and presents some contemporary applications of passive TVAs. Furthermore, the paper also presents a brief discussion on the recent progress of adaptive and semi-active TVAs along with their on-line tuning strategies, and active and hybrid fail-safe TVAs.
