Particle damper comprises granular particle enclosed in a container within a vibrating structure. The performance of particle damper is strongly nonlinear whose energy dissipation is derived from a combination of mechanisms including plastic collisions and friction between particles or particles and cavity walls. Particle damper containing suitable materials may be effective in a wider temperature range than most other types of passive damping devices. Therefore, it may be applied in extreme temperature environments where most conventional dampers would fail. It may also attenuate vibrations over a broad range of frequencies and cost less. Researches have indicated that particle damper could be a viable option for extreme environment applications. However, to date, no effort has come forward the can prove analytically or numerically that the particle damping is a viable solution for vibration suppression under centrifugal forces. In this paper, a coupling simulation algorithm based on the discrete element method and finite element method and the results of simulative studies aimed at understanding the effects of parameters of particle damper under centrifugal forces are presented. And the results show that the presented coupling simulation algorithm is effective and the analyses of dynamic feature of a plate with particle dampers under centrifugal loads are reasonable.
