Active and Semi-active Vibration Isolation

The conflicting nature of vibration and shock isolation requirements, necessitates design compromises in realizing mounting schemes for systems subject to both vibration and shock perturbations. To avoid making such design compromises, one needs to pursue active and semi-active isolation solutions. One approach to active isolation is combining an active scheme with a traditional passive isolation […]

Vibration and Shock Isolation

DEICON, Inc. was invited to make a presentation on shock and vibration isolation at the global superyacht forum in Amsterdam. The following is an excerpt of the talk. There exist a number of different isolation schemes, e.g., single mounting, double mounting, active isolation, semi-active isolation, air mounting, etc., with different pros and cons. Either one […]
