Abstract

We present the design of a novel anti-vibration mounting. The mounting takes the form of a triangular truss which is ‘folded’ such that each section extends in the opposite direction to the previous section. The geometry of this complex, compact structure is optimised to exploit the reflections that occur in vibrational waves travelling through the structure to provide significant levels of vibration isolation. In this study we have achieved a 15dB reduction in vibration energy compared to a baseline regular structure.
