Abstract : An almost linear optimization problem of importance in vibration isolation has been identified and algorithms were developed to minimize the forced vibrational response of structural systems. The constraints can be either displacements of accelerations. These algorithms have been studied for transient response, frequency response and stationary random using the direct dynamic solution. Multiple response points and loading conditions may be used. (Author)
