Weight Reduction of Structural Vibration Isolation Hydro-Mount Bracket Through Design Analysis and Use of Advanced High Strength Steels 2009-01-1230

Vibration Isolation Mounts are designed to isolate noise, reduce resonant vibration and lower structure-borne noise. The external mounting bracket that encases the fluid filled inner mount is usually made from relatively thick (~3 mm) high strength low alloy steel and has critical structural and durability requirements. In this study, a practical approach combining FEA and physical testing was used effectively in component design with complex functional requirements. A new lighter weight configuration with ~ 8% weight savings was validated to pass all the structural and durability requirements.
