Abstract

An analytical procedure for the evaluation of transmissibility of an n-degree-of-freedom viscoelastic antivibration mounting is developed. The method is based on a model consisting of a number of equal masses connected with viscoelastic resilient elements with known properties. The latter can be expressed analytically through suitable rheological models or determined experimentally. Transmissibility is determined by means of a class of polynomials depending on the frequency of the exciting force and the mechanical properties of the system. Generalization to unequal masses and dissimilar resilient elements can directly be obtained.
