vibration isolation

[vī′brā·shən ‚ī·sə′lā·shən]
(engineering)
The isolation, in structures, of those vibrations or motions that are classified as mechanical vibration; involves the control of the supporting structure, the placement and arrangement of isolators, and control of the internal construction of the equipment to be protected.

The book begins with an introduction to techniques behind the statistical design of experiments, then covers areas such as vibration isolation for sensitive instruments and machines, piezoelectric actuation for nanometer motion control, design of a viscosimeter, and infrasonic and ultrasonic microphones.
The two very common passive vibration control approaches are vibration isolation, insertion of a vibration isolator between the source and the receiver of vibration, and vibration absorption, attachment of a vibration absorber (a secondary system) to the primary system.
A lightweight benchtop vibration isolation system has been introduced by Kinetic Systems, Inc.
The TD3500 SATA assembly includes a TD3500 SATA hard drive and isolation kit, which provides vibration isolation of the hard drive, making for easier installation in the servers.
Under maximum load at 80 psi and 10 Hz, typical vibration isolation efficiencies are 93% with a vertical natural frequency of 1.5 Hz and 95% with a horizontal natural frequency of 1.6 Hz.
Torsion Control Products, Troy, Mich., has introduced a line of spring couplings designed for torsional vibration isolation, resonance isolation, overload and shock load protection, noise attenuation and extended bearing/gear life on Tier 3 and Tier 4 diesel engines.
This, says Trelleborg, offers excellent vibration isolation properties with minimum movement under thrust forces.
The university has been developing the method for imaging brain activity for 42 years, but it was not until several years ago that the lab opted to move to a higher level of vibration isolation technology to support its microscopy imaging which it conducts at the micron level.
This article will examine if, why, or when vibration from HVAC&R equipment causes a problem in buildings, and some practical vibration isolation theory and installation guidelines.
Built on unibody architecture, engineers revised Sprinter's suspension bearings to improve vibration isolation; the transverse leaf springs are manufactured from fiberglass-reinforced plastic, resulting in reduced weight and improved stability.
There are also low sound levels and vibration isolation.
