User oriented charts for optimum design of impact dampers are developed and presented. The charts can be used to select optimum combination of impact damper parameters which meet the design requirements. Periodic symmetric two impacts per cycle dampers were optimized. The maximum displacement amplitude of the primary system was minimized. A minimax principle and direct search algorithm are used to optimize the nonlinear constrained multivariable objective function.
