In this chapter, we examine a linear, one degree-of-freedom, base excited vibration isolator system as the simplest model for a vibration isolator and vehicle suspension. Based on a root mean square (RMS) optimization method, we develop a design chart to determine the optimal damper and spring for the best vibration isolation and ride comfort.
