The present paper is aimed at developing methods of damping (decreasing) the amplitudes of random mechanical vibrations of moving equipment by using the approach suggested by the authors. In the description of random vibrations, the theory of random processes is applied, the energy dissipation of mechanisms is determined. Internal and constructional losses are analyzed. The role of viscosity at the propagation of wave energy in certain systems is specified. A level of random vibrations is evaluated. A concrete sample illustrating the role of constructive absorption of energy is analyzed. The paper presents calculation methods, which may be easily applied for the creation of a computer programme
