A new passive technique for reducing vibration and noise using purely nonlinear absorbers is studied. Compared to classical passive systems (Frahm absorbers, Helmholtz resonator), a single nonlinear absorber works in a limited range of forcing but in a wide band of frequency. In this paper, a simple system with two degrees of freedom is used to analyze the beginning of the ‘Targeted Energy Transfer” TET phenomenon and to define the desired working zone for Nonlinear Energy Sink (NES). An analytical formula of the level of forcing for the beginning of TET is established by a simplified approach.
