The problem of multiple passive damping of large flexible space structures is addressed by reformulating the classical Den Hartog absorber problem as a feedback control problem. With this reformulation recent algorithms developed for H control problems can be applied to determine the optimal tuning of the damping devices. Extensions to multiple degree of freedom systems are straightforward.
