Vibration of beams carrying discrete dampers and masses has been studied using standard Fourier transform method. It has been shown that the discrete damping coefficients can be expressed as a function of a uniformly distributed damping coefficient and this leads to a considerable simplification of the mathematics involved. A simply supported and a clamped beam have been considered, but emphasis for numerical calculations has been given on the simply supported beam. The calculations have been verified experimentally.
