There are many practical situations where resonances and instabilities in pinion-gear systems are difficult to predict in the design stage due to the unreliability of estimating the mesh stiffness and damping parameters. This paper presents a procedure for the design of an optimal dynamic absorber system which can be used in conditions where preliminary analysis shows that high dynamic tooth loads are likely to occur. The optimal parameters for the absorber are given in a generalized form in order to simplify its design for a particular gear system.
