The effects of particle dampers attached on a classical column under dynamical loadings are investigated. A number of tests were performed to evaluate the ability of particle dampers to control the vibration of a small scale multidrum column under a swept-frequency sinusoidal signal. The particle damper can reduce considerably the response of the column to sinusoidal excitation when the size of the container, the mass ratio, the particle size and the placement of the damper are properly selected.
