Nonlinear vibration absorbers are known as being frequency-robust but not amplitude-robust devices. This lack of amplitude robustness is due to the frequency-energy dependence of their related nonlinear oscillations. This feature makes the design of nonlinear vibration absorbers a particulary challenging problem. In this paper an innovative design procedure of a nonlinear vibration absorber is proposed so that a nonlinear mode of a nonlinear primary structure can be controlled in a frequency and amplitude robustness fashion.
