vibration isolator

vibration isolator (bonded-elastomeric type)
vibration isolator (coil-spring type)
A resilient support for machinery, piping, ductwork, etc., which may act as a source of vibration; designed to reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the building structure.

In this work, the Arrhenius equation was used to determine the change in the properties of rubbers, and the following properties were adopted as the main physicomechanical properties characterizing the life of the vibration isolator: the static modulus, the dynamic modulus, the logarithmic decrement, the development of residual compressive deformation and the hysteresis losses.
[5] designed a quasi-zero stiffness vibration isolator with cam--roller--spring mechanisms, the piecewise nonlinear dynamic model's peak transmissibility and starting frequency won't overshoot those of corresponding linear systems; Ivana Kovacic et al.

The Ultra-Low Frequency Vibration Isolator. The frequency range over which a linear passive vibration isolator is effective is often limited by the amount stiffness required to support a static load.
To achieve a passive launch and on-orbit vibration isolator that does not require a hold and release mechanism, we focused on the superelastic behavior of the compressed SMA mesh washer as shown in Figure 1 [21].
In recent years, increasingly used vibration isolators with coil springs and elastic elements, because they showed better qualities compared to conventional anti-vibration stand, because they are designed to be low-level and they are very effective for low frequency vibrations.
For instance, the elastomeric vibration isolators [1], the motion of a rolling ship subjected to the synchronous beam waves [2], the backlash and impact phenomena [3], and the micromechanical oscillators [4], to say a few, have been modeled by considering nonlinear damping terms.
Although conventional vibration isolator has been widely used in engineering practice, there are inherent limitations on the amount of isolation it can achieve.
