Particle damping is a passive control technology with strong nonlinearity whose damping effect is relative to the vibration intensity where a particle damper is installed. Then, seeking the optimal installing location of the particle damper to improve the damping effect and vibration control performance is an important research project. To this problem, bound optimization by quadratic approximation (BOBYQA) was employed to discuss the optimal location of a particle damper at the both fixed end plate. For theoretically evaluating the damping effect and invoking it into BOBYQA, the principle of gas-solid flow was used to study the damping effect and establish the theoretical model of particle damping. Further, the estimation precision of the mathematical model was verified by experiment; the results indicate that the proposed mathematical model can more accurately predict the dynamic response of a particle damper installed at both fixed end plate. Therefore, a mathematical model was employed to discuss the optimal position of the particle damper for minimizing maximum amplitude (MMA). The results indicate that particle damper should be installed at the model top close to the monitoring point; if there are two resonances whose amplitudes are equivalent or approximate, the particle damper should be installed at the junction of these model tops.
