Modeling and Dynamics of a MDOF Isolation System
AbstractThis study analyzes the modeling and dynamics of a novel passive multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) vibration isolation platform which can achieve a significant isolation effect. Symmetrical scissor-like structures (SLSs) are utilized in the proposed MDOF isolation platform as the supporting and isolation elastic components. Based on the mathematical modeling and theoretical analysis of the MDOF vibration isolation system with SLSs, the effects of structural parameters and joint friction on the stiffness and damping properties are investigated. It is shown that due to geometric relations within the SLSs, the natural frequencies can be reduced via adjusting structural parameters of the SLS for different direction vibration isolation. Theoretical and experimental results show that the SLS isolation platform can achieve much better loading capacity and vibration isolation performance simultaneously by only using linear passive components because of the MDOF adjustable stiffness property. Therefore, with low cost and energy consumption, the proposed novel isolation platform can improve the vibration suppression in various engineering practices. View Full-Text
