A Linear Particle Chain (LPC) impact damper is a newly developed passive vibration control device. It is an extension for the commonly used conventional (single unit) impact damper. In this paper, experimental investigations are conducted to examine the efficacy of the LPC impact damper in attenuating the free vibrations of single degree of freedom structures. The experiments’ outcomes clearly indicate the significant effect of the LPC impact damper in suppressing the structure vibration compared to the conventional impact dampers.
