Vibration Isolation Review: II. Shock Excitation

Received16 Apr 1996
Accepted20 Jun 1996


This is the second part of a two part review of shock and vibration isolation. It covers three distinct categories of shock excitation—pulselike shock, velocity shock, and complex shock—and discusses the means that are available in each case to measure the effectiveness of shock mitigation by the imposition of flexible connections between the isolated system and its base.
