Dynamic analysis of a laminated rubber – metal spring vibration isolator for sustainable designThis chapter presents a dynamic analysis on a laminated rubber–metal spring (LR-MS) using an analytical method. Rubber material was chosen because it has very high damping, and so is highly suitable as a vibration isolator application. A rubber-based vibration isolator also offers better environmental sustainability performance due to its natural origin which makes its renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable. Using an analytical method, the internal resonance equation was derived by using the wave propagation method in a longitudinal direction. Then, the lumped parameter system was developed to represent the baseline model of LR-MS. The mathematical modeling of the model was developed based on the internal resonance, lumped parameter, and finite rod model. In conclusion, the developed LR-MS mathematical model can be used for future sustainable design of a vibration isolator in building applications.
