Dynamics and Control
- The purpose of the anti-vibration mounts is to isolate the instrument from vibrations of the basement. A sensitive instrument with a mass of 2 is supported on ten bubble mounts each of stiffness valid for low deformation amplitudes. The mount exhibits viscous damping with coefficient and has a nonlinear stiffness at high amplitude deformation as it is shown in Figure A1.

- Determine the steady state vibration amplitude of the instrument if the basement vibrates with a frequency of and an amplitude of . Assume that the buble mounts are operating in the linear zone of their deformation.
- Determine the range of excitation frequency where the isolation effect takes place. Explain the importance of isolation effect in this case?
- Comment qualitatively how the system response behaves. You can use the relevant matlab scrip in the module shell to demonstrate your response. (3 marks)

- An engine with mass of M=2000 kg is supported on a rubber mount with stiffness of k=1.5 MN/m (Figure A2). To reduce the engine vibrations a dashpot is fitted in the system. When the dashpot tested without the engine running, it reduced the amplitude of vibrations to one-sixth of the initial value in three complete oscillation’s cycles. When the engine is runing at 550 rev/min the unbalance force is F= 2.5 kN.
