Stiffness computation for optimization of shape of elastomer shock isolator

  • Rohit, Sunil Nimje, Ankit Varshney


This paper explains about the analytical method of calculating the stiffness of the Shock isolator subjected to half sine shock pulse. The value of stiffness obtained can be further used for deciding the shape and dimensions of the Elastomer based shock isolator. The method used utilizes the concept of shock response spectrum.
