This paper investigates the vibration mode structure of three-dimensional, cyclically symmetric centrifugal pendulum vibration absorber (CPVA) systems. The rotor in the system has two translational, one rotational, and two tilting degrees of freedom. The equations of motion for the three-dimensional model, including the rotor tilting, are derived to study the modes analytically and numerically. Only three mode types exist: rotational, translational-tilting, and absorber modes. The rotational and absorber modes have identical properties to those of in-plane models. Only the translational-tilting modes contain rotor tilting. The veering/crossing behavior between the eigenvalue loci is derived analytically.
