Shock performance of different semiactive damping strategies

Ledezma-Ramirez, D.F., Ferguson, N and Brennan, M. (2010) Shock performance of different semiactive damping strategies Journal of Applied Research and Technology, 8, (2), pp. 249-259.

Record type: Article


The problem of shock generated vibration is presented and analyzed. The fundamental background is explained based on the analysis of a single degree-of-freedom model with passive stiffness and damping. The advantages and limitations of such a shock mount are discussed. Afterwards, different semi-active strategies involving variable damping are presented. These strategies have been used for harmonic excitation but it is not clear how they will perform during a shock. This paper analyzes the different variable damping schemes already used for harmonic vibration in order to find any potential advantages or issues for theoretical shock pulses
