The paper analyzes and determines the optimal parameters of tuned mass damper to reduce torsional vibration for the machine shaft. The research steps are as follows. First, the optimal parameters of tuned mass damper for the shafts are given by using the maximization of equivalent viscous resistance method. Second, a numerical simulation is performed for configuration of machine shaft to validate the effectiveness of the obtained analytical results. The simulation results indicate that the proposed method significantly increases the effectiveness of torsional vibration reduction. Optimal parameters include the ratio between natural frequency of tuned mass damper and the machine shaft, the ratio of the viscous coefficient of tuned mass damper. The optimal parameters found by numerical method only apply to a machine shaft with specific data. However, the optimal parameters in this paper are found as analytic and explicit to help scientists easily apply to every machine shafts when the input parameters of the machine shaft change.
