In this paper the transverse vibration of a fixed-fixed end beam will be investigated by experimental measurement. This paper is concerned with the classical theory formula as well as the analysis and design of the dynamic vibration absorber (DVA) which is composed by a flexible beam with two masses symmetrically mounted at its both sides. The fixed end beam clamped to a static structure where dynamic vibration absorber then being attached onto it. One side of end of the beam is harmonically excited in transversal direction by an electric shaker. The structure equipped with accelerometer sensor to measure its vibration response amplitudes and natural frequencies. The dynamic vibration absorber arrangement located under motor near the beam end was then being vibrated and done in two conditions; before and after mounting dynamic vibration absorber. The comparison amplitudes before and after eqquiped dynamic vibration absorber were compared and discussed. From the experimental results, proved that the DVA has successfully absorbed the beam vibration hence reduced the vibration amplitude of the beam structure. The knowledge and result obtained from this study can help engineers control the vibration level of beam structure.
