Mechanical systems with several degrees of freedom present vibration properties that allow such a system to be used as an absorber for certain exciting frequencies. The paper aims to expand an analysis previously made by the authors, regarding the dynamic absorption capacity of some mechanical systems in a more general case, which can be encountered in engineering practice. An example shows how to apply these properties in the calculation and the resulting advantages.
