Paper Abstract

Basic principles of vibration isolation are presented using a simple single-degree-of-freedom-model. This model is used to explain the design of linear spring and damper isolation systems. Governing equations for air spring isolators are reviewed. The relationship between system isolation efficiency and table or platform performance is shown. Some problems with current configurations of vibration isolation systems are analyzed.
