AbstractAn analytical procedure for the dynamic analysis of the unidirectional periodic isolator, consisting of n concentrated masses and n intermediate arbitrary blocks is developed. Complex polynomials depending on the four pole parameters of the mounts and on the frequency of excitation are introduced, to express analytical forms for the impedances and transmissibilities of the general system. By means of these polynomials, the frequency equation of the undamped isolator can be derived directly, for free or fixed boundary conditions. Application of the method was made with isolators consisting of masses and distributed elements of rubber with internal damping.
