Vibration Design and Control

Consider the schematic diagram of a vibratory system shown in Figure 12.1. Forcing excitations f(t) to the mechanical system S cause the vibration responses y. Our objective is to suppress y to a level that is acceptable. Clearly, there are three general ways of doing this:

1. Isolation: Suppress the excitations of vibration. This method deals with f.
