Abstract

This section presents a case study and theoretical example to illustrate how control may be applied to achieve a specific vibration isolation performance. with a linearised, viscous type, overall damper characteristic as an alternative to that of the steadily excited Bingham plastic fluid. The study is followed through from the point of view of an ER fluid, but for an MR fluid the consideration is ahnost exactly the saine.
