Access from EThOS:
A time-domain six-parameter model is adopted to simulate the vibration behaviour of various rubber-isolators at constant temperature and preload over the frequency range of 0.05-25 Hz. The model consists of three components based on a nonlinear parabolic spring, a fractional-derivative-based springpot, and a smooth-slip friction element. The adopted mode working in one-dimensional manner is capable of generating force as a function of displacement.
