Summary note
"This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the principles of design and means for realization of passive vibration isolation systems for real life objects. A special emphasis is given to effective techniques and methods that are not yet widely used in the practice of vibration isolation in industry." "The book is written with practitioners in mind and many of the problems addressed and the solutions presented are relevant not only to the isolation of stationary sensitive equipment (the main thrust of the book), but also to civil engineering and transport applications."--Jacket
