Vibration Reduction

There are many examples in engineering where vibration levels can become so high that they threaten the structural integrity of the machine or structure concerned, the reliability of essential electronic equipment, or the health and efficiency of those exposed to it. In some cases it can be said that a high level of vibration is inherent in the design of a machine or vehicle, and measures to reduce it or isolate it are almost always needed, for example:

(a) Reciprocating engines inevitably generate periodic forces that must be isolated from the vehicle interior in nearly all cases, and crankshaft torsional vibrations ...
