Effect of External Excitation on Dynamic Characteristics of Vibro-Isolating Table


Article Preview

Performance of optical table with pneumatic vibration isolators is analyzed within 2–50 Hz frequency range. Specific vibrational excitation platform with a vibrator of the frequency range of 1–50 Hz in one of three directions were tested.The following pneumatic vibration isolator dynamic parameters were identified:transmissibility of vertical oscillation characteristics at 50 Hz frequency range;resonant frequency (vertical direction);damping efficiency at 5 Hz to 10 Hz for excitation frequencies.
