61. A NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF COMBINED SHOCK AND VIBRATION ISOLATION THROUGH THE SEMI-ACTIVE CONTROL OF MAGNETORHEOLOGICAL FLUID DAMPER IN PARALLEL WITH AN AIR SPRING

Combining shock and vibration isolation into a single isolation mount is investigated numerically through the use of the Bouc-Wen model of a magnetorheological fluid damper in parallel with an air spring. The stability and dissipative capabilities of the Bouc-Wen model are proven mathematically. The response characteristic of this hybrid isolator to shock and vibration inputs is explored. The advantages of combining shock and vibration isolation into a single package is discussed. It is possible, using this technique, for a single device to perform equally well as a shock and a vibration isolator.
