A passive tuned mass damper (TMD) fabricated using the Reid damping, referred to as the Reid-TMD, is proposed. First, the characteristics of the Reid damping model are introduced, followed by the presentation of a passive variable friction damper to achieve this model. Next, the steady-state response of single-degree-of-freedom structures with the Reid-TMD under a harmonic load is solved by the harmonic balance method (HBM), together with an error analysis of the results. Subsequently, the optimization and control effect of the Reid-TMD damping system are analyzed and compared with the traditional viscous damping TMD. The results show that under the action of a harmonic load or seismic load, the vibration suppression effect of the Reid-TMD with the same mass ratio is essentially equivalent to the traditional viscous damping TMD. In addition, the damping control effect increases with the increase in mass ratio. When the mass ratio is less than 0.05, the energy dissipation coefficient is less than 0.5 and the frequency ratio is less than 0.95. For parameters within this range, the steady-state response of the seismic reduction structure with the Reid-TMD is solved by the HBM. If the parameters of the Reid-TMD are outside this range, the error of the HBM becomes large, and recourse should be changed to general numerical methods. The optimum parameters of the Reid-TMD are determined through an optimization analysis for the mass ratio in the range of 0.005–0.1. While using the Reid-TMD for the vibration absorption design, the optimum parameters can be acquired directly by using the established tables. Because the passive variable friction damper has good durability and economy, the application of the Reid-TMD is beneficial to shock absorption technology.
