Default Interesting Scientific paper examining spring isolation.

The following paper is an effort to design a passive vibration isolation solution for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory.

I don't completely follow the math, but I do appreciate the thinking behind the effort to combine materials/ constrained layer damping and spring design.

I hope that it stimulates some minds here also.

Sure, the math background is universal, but at least the discussed application couldn't be much further away from the things discussed here

Yep. Silly of me to think that we might be interested in any new developments on the isolation front.

This is very interesting information. I wonder how many man-hours were spent in this research project
Thanx for posting this
