Every vibration structure has a certain resonance which tends to oscillate with larger amplitude at certain frequencies. These frequencies are known as resonance frequencies or natural frequencies of the structure. At these resonance frequencies, even a small periodic force can result the structure to vibrate excessively. Thus, in this study, the free and forced vibrations of fixed-fixed ends plate were simulated using a commercial Finite Element Analysis software, such as ANSYS to investigate the natural frequencies, mode shape and the response of the plate. Later, the vibration absorber is attached to the plate in order to decrease the vibration amplitude produced by a shaker. The preliminary result shows that the plate vibration reduced significantly with attached a single absorber.
