A short review of vibration isolation using various insulating materials

Metallurgy and Materials

As for the increasing dependability of man on the machine, it seems necessary to strive for improvement of the performance of machines given that the dependent inputs are not changed drastically. In mechanical engineering terms, we are accustomed to working towards increasing the efficiency of a prime mover or core machine setup by developing methods to reduce wastage of energy, and performance reducing factors can be eradicated. In machines vibration is the underlying factor that complies to carry out periodic maintenance, not working up to the full potential of the prime movers, limiting the working and output of the mechanical forces and thus resulting in reduced performances. This paper provides brief review of the effects vibration has on the performance and how isolating it can result in increased efficiency and performance.
