Vibration Isolation Optimization

COURSE NO: M02-004
Vibration Isolation Optimization
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the vibration isolation modeling, optimization techniques, mass properties and stiffness and dampening of airbags and steel springs.


In this study an analytical and experimental study is conducted to investigate the effect of isolator locations on the effectiveness of vibration isolation systems. The study uses isolators with fixed properties and evaluates potential improvements to the isolation system that can be achieved by optimizing isolator locations.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers who select and specify vibration isolation products and wish to optimize the selection of those vibration isolation products.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education online PDH course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Vibration isolation modeling
  • Stiffness and damping
  • Optimization techniques
  • Mass properties, stiffness and damping and constraint evaluation
